tests whether the regions reg1 and reg2 are similar.
- The regions reg1 and reg2 are similar if reg2 can be obtained from reg1 by a combination of translations, rotations, reflections and uniform scalings.
- Typically used to test whether two regions have the same shape or whether one has the same shape as the mirror image of the other.
- RegionSimilar[reg1,reg2] gives True if there is an affine transformation from reg1 to reg2 with matrix m satisfying .
- Two regions reg1 and reg2 are similar if there is an affine transformation that maps reg1 into reg2 with a constant ratio between distance of two points and their images.
