Then here’s an overview paper by Yale’s Steve Zucker about image detection using differential geometry. In his model, detection of edges and textures is based on the tangent bundle. Apparently, unlike some approaches in computational vision, this differential geometry approach has neurological correlates in the structure of the connections in the visual cortex. The visual cortex is arranged in a set of columns; the hypothesis is that these represent $\mathbb{R} \times S^1$, with the column representing position and the slices at different heights of the columns representing orientation.
