Studying large deformations with a Riemannian approach has been an efficient point of view to generate metrics between deformable objects, and to provide accurate, non ambiguous and smooth matchings between images. In this paper, we study the geodesics of such large deformation diffeomorphisms, and more precisely, introduce a fundamental property that they satisfy, namely the conservation of momentum. This property allows us to generate and store complex deformations with the help of one…

Brenier's (1991) polar factorization is employed to decompose a diffeomorphism h as h(chi) = S o psi(chi), where psi = deltarho is the gradient of a convex function p and S epsilon SDiff(R(d)) is a volume-preserving diffeomorphic group.

This method is based on spline interpolation, and on recent techniques developed for the estimation of flows of diffeomorphisms, and provides a Riemannian distance on sets of landmarks (with fixed cardinality), which can be defined intrinsically, without refering to diffEomorphisms.
