Multiscale Covariance Fields, Local Scales, and Shape Transforms
We introduce the notion of multiscale covariance tensor fields associated with a probability measure on Euclidean space and use these fields to define local scales at a point and to construct shape transforms. Local scales at x may be interpreted as scales at which key geometric features of the data organization around x are revealed. Shape transforms are employed to identify points that are most salient in terms of the local-global shape of a probability distribution, yielding a compact summary of the geometry of the distribution.
