Two sets of points in £ -dimensional space are given: a
data set ¤ consisting of ¥ points, and a pattern set or probe
¦ consisting of § points. We address the problem of deter-
mining whether there is a transformation, among a specified
group of transformations of the space, carrying
¦ into or
near (meaning at a small directed Hausdorff distance of) ¤ .
The groups we consider are translations and rigid motions.
Runtimes of approximately ¨© log and ¨© log re-
