This thesis investigates the applicability of VSLAM  on target applications in robotics and augmented reality (AR). The performance-efficiency trade-off of VSLAM is significantly  improved by leveraging theorems on submodular submatrix selection. Multiple algorithmic components of modern VSLAM system are investigated and improved in this thesis, each of which pushed the applicability of VSLAM forward a little bit.
