By the way, is there anything we can do about all the ugly instances of \[DirectedEdge] up there?

comment Finding an optimal overlay of two point clouds
Actually the zero map is also affine but obviously doesn't preserve distances. What you want is a "Rigid" transformation.

comment Find the nearest locations for multiple points
The Hungarian algorithm solves what is known as the assignment problem. Apparently one can solve such problems directly in Mathematica since version 9.

comment How can I plot a list of 1-D data along the x-axis?
@Jakob Akkerboom: Your edit changed 4, 4.874 to 4 4.874. What were you intending to do?

comment projecting a RegionProduct into 3D space
In this context of regions in Euclidean space, this operation is more commonly known as the Minkowski sum. There doesn't appear to be a built-in method for it. If TransformedRegion accepted two regions as input, you could have done TransformedRegion[r1, r2, Function[{p1, p2}, p1 + p2]], but that doesn't work right now.

comment Manahalobis distance between two vectors
That's not what the Mahalanobis distance is. The covariance matrix should be a third parameter independent of u and v.

comment How to generate random points in a region?
Ah, I should have known my randomBarycentric function was (the special case of) a well-known probability distribution.

comment Curve fit based on minimal data
Consider the first example under Notes. If you just knew the positions of the two points and their associated tangents, how would you know how large to make the circle?

comment Is there a way to logically test an optional color input inside a module?
I guess you want a pattern that matches colors.
