Deformable Templates

Deformable templates represent shapes as transformations of a given prototype, or template, shifting the modeling effort from the shape space itself to the space of transformations. The models that are presented in this chapter are linear versions of this approach, and can be seen as precursors of the nonlinear constructions, based on diffeomorphism groups,, that will be the main focus of the rest of this book.
