Search is a fundamental task that enables us to access relevant data quickly in today’s “sea of information”. To facilitate fast response time, sophisticated indexing methods were developed for searching massive amounts of textual information. Recently, research has begun to focus more and more on other types of information such as audio, video, shapes and 3D models.

In this movie we raise the question of how to measure shape similarity, present basic techniques to accomplish it, and demonstrate their effectiveness with a 3D collage modeling application.

This film is included in the compilation MathFilm 2008 DVD.
