### Description

Convexity is a measure of how close a region is to being convex. Convex regions have convexity equal to 1.0, while the more concave the region is, the closer to 0.0 is its convexity.

Mathematically, the convexity is calculated as follows:

### Hints

- If the input region is not guaranteed to be non-empty, precede this filter with SkipEmptyRegion.
