Title: Invariants of projective [math]\displaystyle{ PSL_2 }[/math]-actions and their application to recognition of fingerprints

Abstract:
We study the field of rational differential invariants of the left [math]\displaystyle{ PSL_2(\mathbb{R}) }[/math]-action on the homogeneous space [math]\displaystyle{ \mathrm{Diff}(S^1)/PSL_2(\mathbb{R}) }[/math] and use them to give an alternative description of the shape space and fingerprints, introduced by Mumford and Sharon.
