 Frederic Fol Leymarie
Morpholingua: Shape Language and its application to Archaeology
This event took place on Monday 30 April 2007 at 11:30

I will describe the elements of a shape language for 2D and 3D objects, and illustrate its potential in particular in the field of archaeology. This early version of a shape language builds on the work and collaboration from the fields of Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Computational Geometry, Visual Perception, Arts and the Humanities. It is based on a representation for shapes taking the form of graphs, called "shock graphs" in 2D and "shock scaffolds" in 3D. These incorporate ideas from well-known concepts such as the "medial axis" of H. Blum (pattern recognition), Voronoi diagrams and recent results from Singularity theory. I will illustrate the use of theses graphs in various applications, with a focus on the field of archaeology, which is supported by an on-going collaboration with Brown University's Archaeology group and their internationally re-known work at the site of the Great Temple of Petra, Jordan.
