A Texture Atlas is an efficient color representation for 3D Paint Systems. The model to be textured is decomposed into charts homeomorphic to discs, each chart is parameterized, and the unfolded charts are packed in texture space. Existing texture atlas methods for triangulated surfaces suffer from several limitations, requiring them to generate a large(More)
Figure 1: Processing pipeline of our method: A: Compute the Manifold Harmonic Basis (MHB) of the input triangulated mesh. B: Transform the geometry into frequency space by computing the Manifold Harmonic Transform (MHT). C: Apply the frequency space filter on the transformed geometry. D: Transform back into geometric space by computing the inverse MHT.(More)

One of the challenges in geometry processing is to automatically reconstruct a higher-level representation from raw geometric data. For instance, computing a parameterization of an object helps attaching information to it and converting between various representations. More generally, this family of problems may be thought of in terms of constructing(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel polygonal remeshing technique that exploits a key aspect of surfaces: the intrinsic <i>anisotropy</i> of natural or man-made geometry. In particular, we use curvature directions to drive the remeshing process, mimicking the lines that artists themselves would use when creating 3D models from scratch. After extracting and(More)
Many algorithms in computer graphics and geometry processing use two orthogonal smooth direction fields (unit tangent vector fields) defined over a surface. For instance, these direction fields are used in texture synthesis, in geometry processing or in nonphotorealistic rendering to distribute and orient elements on the surface. Such direction fields can(More)
BACKGROUND The diagnosis and treatment of bacterial pneumonia in patients who are receiving mechanical ventilation remain a difficult challenge. The triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells (TREM-1) is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, and its expression on phagocytes is specifically up-regulated by microbial products. The presence of(More)
The triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells (TREM)-1 is a recently discovered receptor expressed on the surface of neutrophils and a subset of monocytes. Engagement of TREM-1 has been reported to trigger the synthesis of proinflammatory cytokines in the presence of microbial products. Previously, we have identified a soluble form of TREM-1 (sTREM-1)(More)
To study the factors associated with relative adrenocortical deficiency in mechanically ventilated, critically ill patients Prospective observational study in a multidisciplinary ICU of a university-affiliated teaching hospital Sixty-two consecutive, acutely ill patients needing mechanical ventilation for more than 24 h. A high-dose short corticotropin test(More)
We present a new globally smooth parameterization method for the triangulated surfaces of arbitrary topology. Given two orthogonal piecewise linear vector fields defined over the input mesh (typically the estimated principal curvature directions), our method computes two piecewise linear periodic functions, aligned with the input vector fields, by(More)
