The Canonical Coordinates Method for Pattern Deformation: Theoretical and Computational Considerations
December 1992 (vol. 14 no. 12)
pp. 1171-1183

A method for the analysis of deformed patterns is presented and analyzed. The image is transformed into a new set of coordinates in which the deformation has a particular simple form. A number of deformations are considered. The practical implementation of the method is discussed. Similar aspects of biological vision are also considered.
