Noncommutative Harmonic Analysis in Multi Object Tracking

An interesting paper that highlights the relevance of noncommutative harmonic analysis (NHA) in the contemporary areas of machine intelligence, robotics, image processing and so on.  Its introductory sections explaining the basics of NHA are  very well written.

As the paper points out on page 2: ``Simultaneously tracking  n targets in space ... involves estimating  the assignment of targets to tracks, (a task that is) called the identity assignment or data association problem." I would suggest reading up on what this problem is. In my off-the-cuff search, I was led to the paper, `The Identity Management Problem- A Short Survey' by Leonides J. Guibas.  It may be of help.  A copy is attached.
