Human Motion Analysis

The recovery of dense motion information enables the combined analysis of shapes and their motions. Typical examples include the estimation of mean shapes given a set of 3D models or the identification of abnormal deformations of a shape given its typical evolutions. The interest arises in several application domains where temporal surface deformations need to be captured and analyzed. It includes human body analyses for which potential applications are anyway numerous and important, from the identification of pathologies to the design of new prostheses.
