Thesis Title Statistical shape analysis of molecular data
Thesis Abstract The development of statistical shape techniques for the comparison of geometric objects where the number of points on each object may differ and the correspondence of points between objects IS unknown. The results will be used to develop techniques for quantifying similarity in the steric properties of complex molecules. A major motivation for the development of these techniques is their application to the large scale automated comparison of structures held in chemical databases such as the Protein Data Bank.
