Transforming A Family of Curves into A Family of Curves with A Single Shape.
Levine, Michael V.
The relatively hard problem of transforming a given set of curves to curves with the same shape can sometimes be reduced to the easier problem of rendering curves parallel. In this paper a group is associated with the given curves, and it is shown that the reduction from the hard problem to the easy problem is valid whenever the group is nonabelian. A comprehensive review of earlier work is included so that this paper can be read alone. Applications to psychological measurement are cited briefly. (Author)
