Symmetry is ubiquitous in our everyday life. Many objects are symmetrical, and their surfaces are often covered with symmetrical patterns. The visual aesthetics of symmetry have been well regarded in art, and the sensitivity of the visual system to symmetry has frequently been studied in visual science. Our sensitivity to symmetry often rests on teleological explanations, but recent studies have shown that the visual system makes use of the symmetry of objects and patterns to perceive them veridically. We now possess computer vision theories and models that are based on the symmetry of objects and patterns. This Special Issue is devoted to empirical and theoretical studies of the role symmetry plays in human, computer, and animal vision in our everyday life.
