Title: Shape analysis through flows of diffeomorphisms

Location: VR-II, V-258
Time: Thursday June 13 at 11.00 am


The goal of shape analysis is to compare shapes in a way that takes into account their geometric properties. The end goal is to give an adapted framework for the statistical analysis of medical data, in order to identify sick patients automatically for example. In this talk, I will describe a method introduced by Alain Trouvé, which allows to compare shapes through flows of diffeomorphisms with minimal energy, using tools from differential geometry and optimal control.
