Moving Frames in Applications
In this talk, I will describe a new approach to the theory of moving frames. The method is completely algorithmic, and applies to very general Lie group actions and even infinite-dimensional pseudo-group. It has led to a wide range of new applications, ranging over differential equations, numerical methods, the calculus of variations, geometric flows, computer vision, differential geometry, invariant theory, and elsewhere. The talk will survey the key ideas and a range of applications.
