curveMoment(curve, p, q)
```function m = curveMoment(curve, p, q)
%CURVEMOMENT  Compute inertia moment of a 2D curve
%   M = curveMoment(CURVE, P, Q)

% coordinate of vertices
px  = curve(:,1);
py  = curve(:,2);

% compute centroids of line segments
cx  = (px(1:end-1)+px(2:end))/2;
cy  = (py(1:end-1)+py(2:end))/2;

% compute length of each line segment
dl  = hypot(px(2:end)-px(1:end-1), py(2:end)-py(1:end-1));

% compute moment
m = zeros(size(p));
for i=1:length(p(:))
m(i) = sum(cx(:).^p(i) .* cy(:).^q(i) .* dl(:));
end
