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.
