Abstract:

To every closed subset A of the Euclidean plane is associated its convex deficiency D and its skeletal pair S,q. Extending a known result A is convex iff S phi iff D phi one can prove different sets have the same skeletal pair iff they have the same convex deficiency. Several other results are presented concerning the correspondence A approaching S,q and the properties of S and q. The relevance of these notions and theorems for a mathematical model of visual perception is emphasized. Author
