In the pattern matching approach to imaging science, the process of metamorphosis in template matching with dynamical templates was introduced in [7]. In [5] the metamorphosis equations of [7] were recast into the Euler-Poincar ́e variational framework of [4] and shown to contain the equations for a perfect complex fluid [3].   

This result related the data structure underlying the process of metamorphosis in image matching to the physical concept of order parameter in the theory of complex fluids [2]. In particular, it cast the concept of Lagrangian paths in imaging science as deterministically evolving curves in the space of diffeomorphisms acting on image data structure, expressed in Eulerian space. In contrast, the landmarks in the standard LDDMM approach are Lagrangian.  

For the sake of introducing an Eulerian uncertainty quantification approach in imaging science, we extend the method of metamorphosis to apply to image matching along stochastically evolving time dependent curves on the space of diffeomorphisms. The approach IS guided by recent progress in developing stochastic Lie transport models for uncertainty quantification in fluid dynamics in [6, 1].
