Normal-Map between Normal-Compatible Manifolds

Abstract : Consider two (n−1)-dimensional manifolds, S and S′ in ℝn. We say that they are normal-compatible when the closest projection of each one onto the other is a homeomorphism. We give a tight condition under which S and S′ are normal-compatible. It involves the minimum feature size of S and of S′ and the Hausdorff distance between them. Furthermore, when S and S′ are normal-compatible, their Frechet distance is equal to their Hausdorff distance. Our results hold for arbitrary dimension n.
