Projective Moment Invariants
October 2004 (vol. 26 no. 10)
pp. 1364-1367
The paper is devoted to the moment invariants with respect to projective transform. It has been a common belief that such invariants do not exist. We show that projective moment invariants exist in a form of infinite series containing moments with positive as well as negative indices.
