“Promediando formas”

Professor Mª Victoria Ibáñez explains in her speech “Promediando formas”, the research work that served to model the average of the Spanish feminine figure. Through three-dimensional scanners, researchers recorded the dimensions of more than 10,000 Spanish women and with the help of the theory of convex sets and the statistical analysis of shapes using landmarks, succeeded in characterizing the median body shape in order to standardize sizes in the textile industry and promote a real and healthy image of women within the conference “What research projects do mathematicians at the UJI?” organized by the directors of the degree in Computational Mathematics and the Department of Mathematics with the aim of explaining their research work simply.
