Symmetry is ubiquitous in our everyday life. Many objects are symmetrical,
and their surfaces are often covered with symmetrical patterns. The visual
aesthetics of symmetry have been well-regarded in art, and the sensitivity
of the visual system to symmetry has frequently been studied in visual
science. Currently, our sensitivity to symmetry is often explained
teleologically, but recent studies have shown that the visual system makes
use of the symmetry of objects and patterns to perceive them veridically.
We also have computer vision theories and models that are based on the
symmetry of objects and patterns. This Special Issue is devoted to
empirical and theoretical studies of the role symmetry plays in human,
computer, and animal vision in our everyday life.
