Given two surfaces that are similar, but not exactly the same, how do you create a correspondence between them? Establishing this correspondence is a first step towards making quantitative comparisons between shapes. Our basic approach is to use stress/strain energy minimization, along with feature landmarks, to build this correspondence. This is joint work with Phil Bayly and his student Andy Knutsen, who graduated in 2009.
Previously, Ly worked on sketching reaction diffusion textures
Ly was partly funded through the Imaging Science Pathway.
