    Advances in shape analysis impact a wide range of disciplines, from
    mathematics and engineering to medicine, archeology, and art. "Shape
    Analysis and Classification: Theory and Practice" offers an integrated
    and conceptual introduction to this dynamic field and its myriad
    applications. Beginning with a comprehensive review of the basic
    mathematical concepts, it deals with shape analysis, from image capture
    to pattern classification, and presents many important techniques,
    including topics such as multiscale shape characterization and feature
    extraction using wavelets and multiscale skeletons.
