For that effect, we include one of the robust functions analyzed in [39], named Lorentzian, which as mentioned in its original formulation is able to differentiate inliers from outliers, based on:
In all the original matching features, including inliers and outliers, displacements are collected, the fact being that the displacement for inliers and outliers between frames is fitted with a Laplacian distribution with a long tail, as shown in Figure 5.
The former is obtained considering the large number of inliers using the Direct Linear Transformation (DLT) algorithm (Zisserman & Hartley, 2004).
The number of inliers represents the similarity between a video frame and query location.
While the recursion proceeds, the inliers of [D.sub.X] populate progressively S(m).
To reduce false matches, algorithms such as random sample consensus (RANSAC) [14] and M-estimator sample consensus (MSAC) [15] are utilized to obtain inliers. Finally, the inliers are used to estimate the transformation between images.

The basic premise of RANSAC is the presence in the data set of both observations that fit the model (inliers) and those which differ from the values (outliers).
INLIERS ARE INCAPABLE OF COMPREHENDING THAT OUTLIERS CAN NOT BECOME PULITZER PRIZE FINALISTS.
