Abstract. This paper proposes a method for detecting shapes of variable struc­
ture in images with clutter. The term ``variable structure'' means that some shape
parts can be repeated an arbitrary number of times, some parts can be optional,
and some parts can have several alternative appearances. The particular variation
of the shape structure that occurs in a given image is not known a priori. Ex­
isting computer vision methods, including deformable model methods, were not
