Object recognition requires robust and stable features that are unique in feature space. Lie group analysis provides a constructive procedure to determine such features, called invariants, when they exist. Absolute invariants are rare in general, so quasi-invariants relax the restrictions required for absolute invariants and, potentially, can be just as useful in real-world applications. The paper develops the concept of a dominant-subspace invariant, a particular type of quasi-invariant, using the theory of Lie groups. A constructive algorithm is provided that fundamentally seeks to determine an integral submanifold which, in practice, is a good approximation to the orbit of the Lie group action. This idea is applied to the long-wave infrared problem and experimental results are obtained supporting the approach. Other application areas are cited
