In the context of large deformations by diffeomorphisms, we propose a new diffeomorphic registration algorithm for 3D images that performs the optimization directly on the set of geodesic flows. The key contribution of this work is to provide an accurate estimation of the so-called initial momentum, which is a scalar function encoding the optimal(More)
The Clebsch method provides a unifying approach for deriving vari-ational principles for continuous and discrete dynamical systems where elements of a vector space are used to control dynamics on the cotangent bundle of a Lie group via a velocity map. This paper proves a reduction theorem which states that the canonical variables on the Lie group can be(More)
We present a numerical algorithm for a new matching approach for parameterisation independent diffeomorphic registration of curves in the plane, targeted at robust registration between curves that require large deformations. This condition is particularly useful for the geodesic constrained approach in which the matching functional is minimised subject to(More)
We introduce a new mixed finite element for solving the 2-and 3-dimensional wave equations and equations of incompressible flow. The element, which we refer to as P1 D-P2, uses discontinuous piecewise linear functions for velocity and continuous piecewise quadratic functions for pressure. The aim of introducing the mixed formulation is to produce a new(More)
We describe and implement a symbolic algebra for scalar and vector-valued finite elements, enabling the computer generation of elements with tensor product structure on quadrilateral, hexahedral and triangular prismatic cells. The algebra is implemented as an extension to the domain-specific language UFL, the Unified Form Language. This allows users to(More)
Accurate simulation of atmospheric flow in weather and climate prediction models requires the discretization of the governing equations to have a number of desirable properties. Although these properties can be achieved relatively straightforwardly on a latitude-longitude grid, they are much more challenging on the various quasi-uniform spherical grids that(More)
We give an exponentially-accurate normal form for a Lagrangian particle moving in a rotating shallow-water system in the semi-geostrophic limit, which describes the motion in the region of an exponentially-accurate slow manifold (a region of phase space for which dynamics on the fast scale are exponentially small in the Rossby number). The result extends to(More)
We develop a particle-mesh method for two-layer shallow-water equations subject to the rigid-lid approximation. The method is based on the recently proposed Hamiltonian particle-mesh (HPM) method and the interpretation of the rigid-lid approximation as a set of holonomic constraints. The suggested spatial discretization leads to a constrained Hamiltonian(More)
