Abstract

The question of analysing shape changes over time, such as during growth and during the progress of disease, is an important fundamental issue for many applications. Recent mathematical developments in the understanding of the detailed structure of shape spaces have made possible the quantitative study of shape variation. In this paper, we combine the classical multidimensional scaling technique with knowledge of the geometry of shape spaces to examine the role played by the geodesics in shape spaces. We present some promising early results answering questions about shape changes over time.
