Further Information:

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 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, fractal analysis and feature extraction using
wavelets and multiscale skeletons.
