Normalized Hamiltonians for measure transportMS75

In this talk, we propose to rescale the classical kernel cometric tensor of LDDMM theory to impose a stochasticity condition. We show that this operation breaks the right-invariance property of LDDMM metrics on spaces of diffeomorphisms, and replaces it with an awareness to the mass of the transported shape. Made computationally tractable by automatic differentiation libraries, the kernel normalization trick turns an extrinsic image deformation routine into an intrinsic measure transportation program.
