Today, digital data such as 2D images, 3D meshes and 3D point clouds are widely used to design virtual environments (VE). Most of the time, only one type of those multimodal data is used to describe and specify the shapes of the objects. However, a single object can be seen ...

Archaeological artifacts are often classified in homogeneous groups, according to either intangible properties (e.g., origin, use, age) or physical features (e.g., color, material, geometric shape, size, style). In particular, a single property is usually not enough to characterize artifacts’ peculiar traits, as most of the objects are affected by degradation ...

A practical guide for researchers who are exploring the new frontiers of 3D shape analysis and managing the complex mathematical tools that most methods rely on. Many research solutions come from advances in pure and applied mathematics, as well as from re-reading classical mathematical theories. Managing these math tools is ...

Since its very existence as a separate field within computer science, computer graphics had to make extensive use of non-trivial mathematics, for example, projective geometry, solid modelling, and approximation theory. This interplay of mathematics and computer science is exciting, but also makes it difficult for students and researchers to assimilate ...

This paper introduces a skeletal representation, called Point Cloud Graph, that generalizes the definition of the Reeb graph to arbitrary point clouds sampled from m-dimensional manifolds embedded in the d-dimensional space. The proposed algorithm is easy to implement and the graph representation yields to an effective abstraction of the data. ...

This paper addresses the definition, contouring, and visualization of scalar functions on unorganized point sets, which are sampled from a surface in 3D space; the proposed framework builds on moving least-squares techniques and implicit modeling. Given a scalar function f:P->R, defined on a point set P, the idea behind our ...

Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) are two significantly different disciplines, and hence they require different shape models representations. As a result, models generated by CAD systems are often unsuitable for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) needs. In this paper, a new approach is proposed to reduce the ...

Research in content-based 3D retrieval has already started, and several approaches have been proposed which use in different manner a similarity assessment to match the shape of the query against the shape of the objects in the database. However, the success of these solutions are far from the success obtained ...

Advances in modeling of discrete models have allowed the development of approaches for direct mesh modeling and modification. These tools mainly focus on modeling the visual appearance of the shape which is a key criterion for animation or surgical simulation. Most of the time, the resulting mesh quality as well ...

In digital geometry processing and shape modeling, the Laplace-Beltrami and the heat diffusion operator, together with the corresponding Laplacian eigenmaps, harmonic and geometry-aware functions, have been used in several applications, which range from surface parameterization, deformation, and compression to segmentation, clustering, and comparison. Using the linear FEM approximation of the ...

This paper presents a method of shape chartification suitable for surface approximation. The innovation of this approach lies on the definition of an iterative refinement of the shape into a set of patches that are automatically tiled and used to approximate the original shape up to a prescribed error. The ...

The behavior of a variety of phenomena measurable on the boundary of 3D shapes is studied by modeling the set of known measurements as a scalar function f :P → R, defined on a surface P. Furthermore, the large amount of scientific data calls for efficient techniques to correlate, describe, ...

We investigate the problem of removing singularities from a non-manifold tetrahedral mesh so as to convert it to a more exploitable manifold representation. Given the twofold combinatorial and geometrical nature of a 3D simplicial complex, we propose two conversion algorithms that, depending on the targeted application, modify either its connectivity ...

3D content stored in big databases or shared on the Internet is a precious resource for several applications, but unfortunately it risks being underexploited due to the difficulty of retrieving it efficiently. In this paper we describe a system called the ''ShapeAnnotator'' through which it is possible to perform non-trivial ...

In this paper, we introduce a novel descriptor of graph complexity which can be computed in real time and has the same qualitative behavior of polytopal (Birkhoff) complexity, which has been successfully tested in the context of Bioinformatics. We also show how the phase-change point may be characterized in terms ...

Given a manifold surface {\cal M} and a continuous scalar function f:{\cal M}\rightarrow {\hbox{\rlap{I}\kern 2.0pt{\hbox{R}}}}, the Reeb graph of ({\cal M},f) is a widely used high-level descriptor of {\cal M} and its usefulness has been demonstrated for a variety of applications, which range from shape parameterization and abstraction to deformation ...
