A Theory of Specular Surface Geometry
, 1996
"... A theoretical framework is introduced for the perception of specular surface geometry. When an observer moves in threedimensional space, real scene features such as surface markings remain stationary with respect to the surfaces they belong to. In contrast, a virtual feature which is the specular r ..."

Surface reconstruction from unorganized points
 COMPUTER GRAPHICS (SIGGRAPH ’92 PROCEEDINGS)
, 1992
"... We describe and demonstrate an algorithm that takes as input an unorganized set of points fx1�:::�xng IR 3 on or near an unknown manifold M, and produces as output a simplicial surface that approximates M. Neither the topology, the presence of boundaries, nor the geometry of M are assumed to be know ..."

GromovWitten classes, quantum cohomology, and enumerative geometry
 Commun. Math. Phys
, 1994
"... The paper is devoted to the mathematical aspects of topological quantum field theory and its applications to enumerative problems of algebraic geometry. In particular, it contains an axiomatic treatment of Gromov–Witten classes, and a discussion of their properties for Fano varieties. Cohomological ..."

ON RECOVERING THE SURFACE GEOMETRY OF TEMPLE SUPERSTRUCTURES
"... Abstract. The application of computational techniques to the analysis of heritage artifacts enables scholars to bring together diverse fragments of surviving evidence, construe “bestfit ” strategies and unearth implicit or hidden relationships. This paper reports a hybrid approach for recovering th ..."

the surface geometry of temples. The approach combines physical measurements, architectural photogrammetry and generative rules to create a parametric model of the surface. The computing of surface geometry is broken into three parts, a global model governing the overall form of the superstructure, local
Global aspects of integrable surface geometry
 Proceedings for ”Integrable Systems and Quantum Field Theory at Peyresq, Fifth Meeting
"... The study of surfaces in 3space has certainly been pivotal in the development of differential geometry and geometric analysis. Real dimension two is of course special in a number of ways: the possible topological types are easy to describe, one can take advantage of complex analysis in dimension o ..."

Influence of Surface Geometry on Metal Properties
"... The influence of surface geometry on metal properties is studied within the limit of the quantum theory of free electrons. It is shown that a metal surface can be modified with patterned indents to increase the Fermi energy level inside the metal, leading to decrease in electron work function. This ..."

Geometry images
 IN PROC. 29TH SIGGRAPH
, 2002
"... Surface geometry is often modeled with irregular triangle meshes. The process of remeshing refers to approximating such geometry using a mesh with (semi)regular connectivity, which has advantages for many graphics applications. However, current techniques for remeshing arbitrary surfaces create onl ..."

Visualizing HighOrder Surface Geometry
"... We have derived parameters that describe the higherorder geometric behavior of smooth surfaces. Our parameters are similar in spirit to the principal directions and principal curvatures that succinctly capture secondorder shape behavior. We derive our parameters from a cylindrical Fourier decompos ..."

polynomial description of the surface geometry in Cartesian coordinates. The other one is a set of Fourier components grouped by angular frequency and by their phase shifts. Manipulating the values in one parameter set changes the geometry of the patch and also updates the parameter values of the other set.
The Geometry of Multiple Images
, 2001
"... We introduce a methodology for radiometric reconstruction, the simultaneous recovery of multiple illuminants and surface albedoes from multiple views, assuming that the geometry of the scene and of the cameras is known. We formulate the linear theory of multiple illuminants and show its similarities ..."

, 1992
"... This paper presents an automatic method of creating surface models at several levels of detail from an original polygonal description of a given object. Representing models at various levels of detail is important for achieving high frame rates in interactive graphics applications and also for speed ..."

Themain contributions of this paper are: 1) a robust method of connecting together new vertices over a surface, 2) a way of using an estimate of surface curvature to distribute more new vertices at regions of higher
