### Abstract

this paper, we propose and analyze a method for computing shape signatures for arbitrary (possibly degenerate) 3D polygonal models. The key idea is to represent the signature of an object as a shape distribution sampled from a shape function measuring global geometric properties of an object. The primary motivation for this approach is to reduce the shape matching problem to the comparison of probability distributions, which is simpler than traditional shape matching methods that require pose registration, feature correspondence, or model fitting

For instance, representations for registering and matching 3D surfaces include Extended Gaussian Images [35], Spherical Attribute Images =-=[24, 25]-=-, Harmonic Shape Images [74], and Spin Images [41]. Unfortunately, these previous methods usually assume that a topologically valid surface mesh or an explicit volume is available for every object. In... |

Example representations of this type include generalized cylinders [18], superquadrics [61], geons [72], deformable regions [13], shock graphs [59], medial axes [11], and skeletons =-=[19, 62]-=-. These methods work best when 3D models can be segmented into a canonical set of features naturally and correspondences can be found between features robustly. Unfortunately, these tasks are difficul... |

For example, Thacker et al =-=[1, 5, 9, 10, 28, 29, 55, 66]-=-, Huet et al. [36], and Ikeuchi et al. [38] have all represented shapes in 2D images by histograms of angles and distances between pairs of 2D line segments. Belongie et al. [14] and Mori et al. [47] ... |

Citation Context ...are investigating provable properties for the D2 shape function. Uniqueness properties for homometric discrete point sets (ones with the same distance distribution) have been proven by Skiena et al. [=-=Skiena et al. 1990-=-]. They developed upper and lower bounds on the number of non-congruent homometric discrete point sets in arbitrary dimensions. Properties have also been proven for the Radon transform for a convex re... |
