We will review progress in brain mapping based on a morphometric space of anatomical coordinate systems with geodesics which generalize the Euler equation of 1755 from L2 spaces of vector field to rkhs spaces with compressibility providing extra terms involving divergence of the vector field. The metric will be examined for studying atrophy in Alzheimer's disease at the 0.2-1 mm scale.
