On the formulation and uses of SVD-based generalized curvatures

In this dissertation we consider the problem of computing generalized curvature values from noisy, discrete data and applications of the provided algorithms. We first establish a connection between the Frenet-Serret Frame, typically defined on an analytical curve, and the vectors from the local Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) of a discretized time-series. Next, we expand upon this connection to relate generalized curvature values, or curvatures, to a scaled ratio of singular values. Initially, the local singular value decomposition is centered on a point of the discretized time-series. This ...
