Partial size-and-shape distributions
The concepts of partial size-and-shape and partial shape are defined, with motivation from a study in human movement analysis. Some co-ordinates for partial shape for landmarks in three dimensions are given, and Gaussian models for the landmark co-ordinates are proposed. The main results involve the derivation of the partial size-and-shape distributions for the isotropic and general multivariate normal models for three-dimensional data. The partial shape distribution is given in the isotropic case. Maximum likelihood based inference is explored, and examples using simulated and real human movement data illustrate the methodology.
