One of the main methods used is principal component analysis. Specific applications of shape analysis may befound in archaeology, architecture, biology, geography, geology, agriculture,genetics, medical imaging, security applications such as face recogn ition, entertainment industry (movies, games), computer-aided design and manufacturing. This is a proposal for a new Brief on statistical shape analysis and thevarious new parametric and non-parametric methods utilized to facilitate shape analysis.

Recent theoretical and technological advances in areas such as robotics, computer vision, computer-aided geometric design andmolecular biology, t ogether with the increased availability of computational resources, have brought these original questions once more into the forefront of research. One particular challenge is to combine applicable methods fromalgebraic geometry with proven techniques fro m piecewise-linear computational geometry (such as Voronoi diagrams and hyperplane arrangements) to develop tools for treating curved objects. These research efforts may be summarized underthe term nonlinear computational geometry. This volume grew out of an IMA workshop on Nonlinear Computational Geometry in May/June 2007 (organized by I.Z. Emiris, R. Goldman, F. Sottile, T. Theobald) which gathered leading experts inthis emerging field. The research and expository articles in the volume are intended to provide an overview of nonlinear computational geometry. Since the topic involves computational geometry, algebraic geometry, and geometricmodeling, the volume has contributions from all of these areas. By addressing a broad range of issues from purely th eoretical and algorithmic problems, to implementation and practical applications this volume conveys the spirit of theIMA workshop Note: Springer eBooks Contents: Spectral Techniques to Explore Point Clouds in Euclidean Space, with Applications to Collective Coordinates in Structural Biology Rational Parametrizations, Intersection Theory, and Newton Polytopes Some Discrete Properties of the Space of Line Transversals to Disjoint Balls Algebraic Geometry and Kinematics Rational Offset Surfaces and their Modeling Applications A List of Challenges for Real Algebraic Plane Curve Visualization Software A Subdivision Method for Arrangement Computation of Semi Algebraic Curves Invariant Based Characterization of the Relative Position of Tw ISBN: 9781441909992 Series: e-books Series: SpringerLink (Online service) Series: The IMA Volumes in Mathematics and its Applications, 0940-6573 : v151 Series: Mathematics and Statistics (Springer-11649) Keywords: Mathematics , Geometry, algebraic , Algebra , Computer science Mathematics , Geometry Availability: Click here to see Library holdings or inquire at Circ Desk (x3401) Click to reserve this book Be sure to include your ID please.
