Removing Shape-Preserving Transformations in Square-Root Elastic (SRE) Framework for Shape Analysis of Curves
This paper illustrates and extends an efficient framework, called the square-root-elastic (SRE) framework, for studying shapes of closed curves, that was first introduced in . This framework combines the strengths of two important ideas - elastic shape metric and path-straightening methods - for finding geodesics in shape spaces of curves. The elastic metric allows for optimal matching of features between curves while path-straightening ensures that the algorithm results in geodesic paths. This paper extends this framework by removing two important shape preserving transformations: rotations and re-parameterizations, by forming quotient spaces and constructing geodesics on these quotient spaces. These ideas are demonstrated using experiments involving 2D and 3D curves.
