Shapes and Features

Abstract

Empirical shapes, for instance those realized in biological organisms, constitute a tiny subset of the mathematically possible ones. They are constrained by coherence between their features. And their classification should incorporate the invariance under suitable classes of transformations. I shall sketch some mathematical framework to account for that.
