<p><b>Abstract</b>—We propose a new model and new algorithm for acquiring symbolic description from a flow field. Our model is derived from physical data, and our algorithm is based on holomorphic complex function theory. Application of this method enables both qualitative and quantitative information to be obtained from a flow field. We also demonstrate the robustness of our method using a simulated flow field and a real image sequence.</p>
