In this paper, we investigate quasi-invariance on a smooth manifold, and show that there exist quasi-invariant parameterisations which are not exactly invariant but approximately invariant under group transformations and do not require high order derivatives. The affine quasi-invariant parameterisation is investigated in more detail and exploited for defining general affine semi-local invariants from second order derivatives only. The new invariants are implemented and used for matching curve segments under general affine motions and extracting symmetry axes of ob jects with 3D bilateral symmetry.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
