Paper Abstract

A few fundamental symbols are common to many mesoamerican cultures. However the shape of each symbol greatly varies depending on the considered culture and period. In this paper, we present a technique to recognize one of these symbols in spite of its shape variability. We base the recognition on a small set of symmetry and morphology rules. We describe the rules and their computational implementation, as well as practical recognition results.
