Overview

Safar (computer engineering, Kuwait U., Kuwait) and Shahabi (computer science, U. of Southern California), who write for practitioners, researchers, and graduate students, describe the current advanced techniques and methods for shape retrieval and computer vision for use in multimedia applications. Topics include boundary based methods for shape representation and retrieval, the use of multidimensional index structures for shape retrieval, similarity and spatial queries, and MBC-based shape retrieval methods.
