Title: Characterizing Smooth Shapes
Speaker: Brendan McCane, University of Otago

In much of the biological literature, shape is represented by finite sets 
of points based on biological landmarks. This is the basis for most of 
morphometrics (statistics of shape) and comes from the underlying notion of 
biological homology. However, there are many shapes for which there are no 
easily definable landmarks, yet it is still
meaningful to want to measure how such shapes change across
a population. In this talk, I will introduce some recent work I have been 
doing on matching and characterizing smooth shapes in two dimensions.
