Pure Maths Colloquium: Statistical shape theory and geometry

Presented by Huiling Le, Nottingham University

9 October 2006 00:00 in CM221

The rapid development in statistical analysis of shape has encountered many issues which classical statistical methods are unable to tackle in more than a crudely approximate fashion. This is due to the fact that the natural structure of shape space is not flat, unlike the Euclidean space for which the classical methods were developed.
In this talk, we look at the geometry of Kendall shape space and discuss how certain results of Riemannian geometry have played important roles in studying some statistical problems in shape analysis.
