Geometry and Topology Seminar [url]
Comparing Shapes of Curves and Surfaces II
    - Eric Klassen, FSU
Time: 3:35 Room: 201 Love
Abstract/Desc: Shape is an important attribute of objects, their images, graphs of functions, etc. Understanding shape is important in many applied fields. For example, the shape of an internal organ might be an indicator of how healthy it is, while the shape of a handwriting sample might indicate whether a signature is forged or authentic. While humans have an intuitive ability to perceive and compare shapes, it is an interesting challenge to develop mathematical formulations to make these comparisons precise, and to implement them on computers. In this talk, I will give a brief survey of some useful techniques which involve Riemannian geometry, Lie groups, and functional analysis.
