Progressive Meshes
"... Highly detailed geometric models are rapidly becoming commonplace in computer graphics. These models, often represented as complex triangle meshes, challenge rendering performance, transmission bandwidth, and storage capacities. This paper introduces the progressive mesh (PM) representation, a new s ..."

Multiresolution Analysis of Arbitrary Meshes
, 1995
"... In computer graphics and geometric modeling, shapes are often represented by triangular meshes. With the advent of laser scanning systems, meshes of extreme complexity are rapidly becoming commonplace. Such meshes are notoriously expensive to store, transmit, render, and are awkward to edit. Multire ..."

QSplat: A Multiresolution Point Rendering System for Large Meshes
, 2000
"... Advances in 3D scanning technologies have enabled the practical creation of meshes with hundreds of millions of polygons. Traditional algorithms for display, simplification, and progressive transmission of meshes are impractical for data sets of this size. We describe a system for representing and p ..."

Mesh Optimization
, 1993
"... We present a method for solving the following problem: Given a set of data points scattered in three dimensions and an initial triangular mesh wH, produce a mesh w, of the same topological type as wH, that fits the data well and has a small number of vertices. Our approach is to minimize an energy f ..."

function that explicitly models the competing desires of conciseness of representation and fidelity to the data. We show that mesh optimization can be effectively used in at least two applications: surface reconstruction from unorganized points, and mesh simplification (the reduction of the number
Generative mesh modeling
, 2005
"... We propose a novel model representation method. Its main feature is that 3D shapes are represented in terms of functions instead of geometric primitives. Given a set of – typically only a few – specific parameters, evaluating such a function results in a model that is one instance of a general shape ..."

shape. The shape description language is a full programming language, but it has an extremely simple syntax. It can be regarded as some form of a ’mesh creation/manipulation language’. It is designed to facilitate the composition of more complex modeling operations out of simpler ones. Thus, it allows
Reconstruction and Representation of 3D Objects with Radial Basis Functions
 Computer Graphics (SIGGRAPH ’01 Conf. Proc.), pages 67–76. ACM SIGGRAPH
, 2001
"... We use polyharmonic Radial Basis Functions (RBFs) to reconstruct smooth, manifold surfaces from pointcloud data and to repair incomplete meshes. An object's surface is defined implicitly as the zero set of an RBF fitted to the given surface data. Fast methods for fitting and evaluating RBFs al ..."

noninterpolating approximation when the data is noisy. The functional representation is in effect a solid model, which means that gradients and surface normals can be determined analytically. This helps generate uniform meshes and we show that the RBF representation has advantages for mesh
Efficient Variants of the ICP Algorithm
 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON 3D DIGITAL IMAGING AND MODELING
, 2001
"... The ICP (Iterative Closest Point) algorithm is widely used for geometric alignment of threedimensional models when an initial estimate of the relative pose is known. Many variants of ICP have been proposed, affecting all phases of the algorithm from the selection and matching of points to the minim ..."

Large steps in cloth simulation
 SIGGRAPH 98 Conference Proceedings
, 1998
"... The bottleneck in most cloth simulation systems is that time steps must be small to avoid numerical instability. This paper describes a cloth simulation system that can stably take large time steps. The simulation system couples a new technique for enforcing constraints on individual cloth particle ..."

The simulator models cloth as a triangular mesh, with internal cloth forces derived using a simple continuum formulation that supports modeling operations such as local anisotropic stretch or compression; a unified treatment of damping forces is included
Using spin images for efficient object recognition in cluttered 3D scenes
 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
, 1999
"... We present a 3D shapebased object recognition system for simultaneous recognition of multiple objects in scenes containing clutter and occlusion. Recognition is based on matching surfaces by matching points using the spinimage representation. The spinimage is a data level shape descriptor that i ..."

We present a compression scheme for spinimages that results in efficient multiple object recognition which we verify with results showing the simultaneous recognition of multiple objects from a library of 20 models. Furthermore, we demonstrate
Collaborative plans for complex group action
, 1996
"... The original formulation of SharedPlans by B. Grosz and C. Sidner ( 1990) was developed to provide a model of collaborative planning in which it was not necessary for one agent to have intentionsto toward an act of a different agent. Unlike other contemporaneous approaches (J.R. Searle, 1990), this ..."
