Abstract
Variation in object shape is an important visual cue for de-
formable object recognition and classification. In this pa-
per, we present an approach to model gradual changes in
the -D shape of an object. We represent -D region shape
in terms of the spatial frequency content of the region con-
tour using Fourier coefficients. The temporal changes in
these coefficients are used as the temporal signatures of the
shape changes. Specifically, we use autoregressive model
of the coefficient series. We demonstrate the efficacy of the
model on several applications. First, we use the model pa-
rameters as discriminating features for object recognition
and classification. Second, we show the use of the model for
synthesis of dynamic shape using the model learned from a
