In this survey we illustrate how the matching distance between reduced size functions can be applied for shape comparison. We assume that each shape can be thought of as a compact connected manifold with a real continuous function defined on it, that is a pair (M, φ : M → R), called size pair. In some sense, the function φ focuses on the properties and the invariance of the problem at hand. In this context, matching two size pairs (M, φ) and (N , ψ) means looking for a homeomorphism between M… CONTINUE READING
