Affine transformations were applied to express translations and rotations (linear transformations and vector addition, resp.
In particular, features-based methods (based on SIFT or others feature descriptors) have been demonstrated so far to be effective against copy-move attack and constitute one of the most promising techniques addressing this issue because they are resistant to JPEG compression, scaling, rotation, and affine transformations and also to digital/analog/digital conversion [10, 11].

In general rigid and affine transformations are used as global transformations and curved transformations are local.
The most notable invariants of grayscale images with respect to affine transformations are affine moment invariants.
Now, there is no question of finding vectors, affine transformations, decompositions, or other elements of the developed field of modern linear algebra in the records of f[a.
To reduce the number of parameters of the affine transformations we applied PCA on the parameters W, which resulted in vector [p.
It is well known that this functional is invariant under unimodular affine transformations.
Understanding the correspondence between matrices and affine transformations can help to clarify the meaning of such key notions from Linear algebra and Geometry such as the linear map, affine map, image and kernel of an affine map, composition of affine maps and transformation of the coordinate system.
