The class of registration methods proposed in the framework of Stokes Large Deformation
Diffeomorphic Metric Mapping is a particularly interesting family of physically
meaningful diffeomorphic registration methods.
Stokes-LDDMM methods are formulated as a conditioned variational problem,
where the different physical models are imposed using the associated partial differential equations
as hard constraints.
The most significant limitation of Stokes-LDDMM framework is its huge computational complexity.
