Advances in shape analysis impact a wide range of disciplines, from
mathematics and engineering to medicine, archeology, and art.  "Shape
Analysis and Classification: Theory and Practice" offers an integrated
and conceptual introduction to this dynamic field and its myriad
applications. Beginning with a comprehensive review of the basic
mathematical concepts, it deals with shape analysis, from image capture
to pattern classification, and presents many important techniques,
including topics such as multiscale shape characterization and feature
extraction using wavelets and multiscale skeletons.
