Representation of 3D and 4D Objects Based on an Associated Curved Space and a General Coordinate Transformation Invariant Description
EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing volume 2007, Article number: 042505 (2006)
This paper presents a new theoretical approach for the description of multidimensional objects for which 3D and 4D are particular cases. The approach is based on a curved space which is associated to each object. This curved space is characterised by Riemannian tensors from which invariant quantities are defined. A descriptor or index is constructed from those invariants for which statistical and abstract graph representations are associated. The obtained representations are invariant under general coordinate transformations. The statistical representation allows a compact description of the object while the abstract graph allows describing the relations in between the parts as well as the structure.
