Abstract : The Medial Axis Transformation is a transformation by which shape description properties may be extracted from an arbitrary shape. The paper examines properties of the transformation as applied to shape recognition, and discusses how these properties may best be used for this purpose. The transformation and its inverse transform have been simulated on a digital computer, and properties of the transformed shape have been examined with the use of the computer. (Author)
