Abstract

The Hausdorff distance, the Gromov–Hausdorff, the Fréchet and the natural pseudo-distance are instances of dissimilarity measures widely used in shape comparison. We show that they share the property of being defined as inf F(ρ) where F is a suitable functional and ρ varies in a set of correspondences containing the set of homeomorphisms. Our main result states that the set of homeomorphisms cannot be enlarged to a metric space K, in such a way that the composition in K (extending the composition of homeomorphisms) passes to the limit and, at the same time, K is compact.
