Title: Momentum Maps, Image Analysis & Solitons

Abstract: This survey talk discusses some opportunities for geometric mechanics in the problem of registration of images, e.g., planar closed curves. It turns out that many aspects of geometric mechanics apply in this problem, including soliton theory and momentum maps. Much of this talk is based on work done with Jerry Marsden (1942 - 2010). Some trade secrets will be revealed.
