Polycube map is a global cross-surface parameterization technique, where the polycube shape can roughly approximate the geometry of modeled objects while retaining the same topology. The large variation of shape geometry and its complex topological type in real world applications make it difficult to effectively construct a high-quality polycube that can(More)
Harmonic volumetric mapping for two solid objects establishes a one-to-one smooth correspondence between them. It finds its applications in shape registration and analysis, shape retrieval, information reuse, and material/texture transplant. In sharp contrast to harmonic surface mapping techniques, little research has been conducted for designing volumetric(More)
—Harmonic volumetric mapping aims to establish a smooth bijective correspondence between two solid shapes with the same topology. In this paper, we develop an automatic meshless method for creating such a mapping between two given objects. With the shell surface mapping as the boundary condition, we first solve a linear system constructed by a boundary(More)
Polycube T-spline has been formulated elegantly that can unify T-splines and manifold splines to define a new class of shape representations for surfaces of arbitrary topology by using polycube map as its parametric domain. In essense, The data fitting quality using polycube T-splines hinges upon the construction of underlying polycube maps. Yet, existing(More)
Accurate measurement and identification of blood vessels could provide useful information to clinical diagnosis. A piecewise Gaussian model is proposed to describe the intensity distribution of vessel profile in this paper. The characteristic of central reflex is specially considered in the proposed model. The comparison with the single Gaussian model is(More)
This paper presents a new and effective method to construct manifold T-splines of complicated topology/geometry. The fundamental idea of our novel approach is the geometry-aware object segmentation, by which an arbitrarily complicated surface model can be decomposed into a group of disjoint components that comprise branches, handles, and base patches. Such(More)
