Gestures are complex in their common understanding. The concept of a gesture has never been thoroughly defined to this date, although gestures are very important in humancomputer interface design, human expressivity in and beyond common language, and above all in the arts. Painting, dance, music, theater, and film would not be understood without gestural concepts and processes. We therefore will give a short introduction to the first mathematical theory of gestures.
