Mathematics, Shape, Computer Vision

This video was recorded at Summer School on Computational Topology and Topological Data Analysis, Ljubljana 2013. This will be an excursus of many aspects of mathematics – in particular of geometry and topology – which are applied in the fields of shape analysis and computer vision. Mathematical subjects to be touched: gradients, critical points, transforms, distances, transformation groups, persistent homology. Applications: contour extraction, alignment detection, shape from X, shape retrieval, automatic diagnosis.
