One of the tools of the shape analysis of molecular electron densities, the Density Threshold Progression Approach used in Shape Group studies can also serve as a criterion for the selection of “natural” molecular fragments, relevant to functional group comparisons, reactivity studies, as well as to the study of levels of relative “autonomy” of various molecular regions. The relevance of these approaches to the fragment-based studies of large molecules, such as biopolymers and nanostructures is emphasized, and the constraints represented by the holographic electron density theorem to this and alternative recent fragment approaches are discussed. The analogies with potential energy hypersurface analysis using the Energy Threshold Progression Approach and connections to level set methods are discussed, and the common features of these seemingly distant problems are described.
