Manipulating Topological Decompositions of Non-Manifold Shapes
This paper describes how updating automatically a specific decomposition of a non-manifold shape can be updated, and shows that the approach may be useful for adapting many geometry processing techniques also to non- manifold shapes, where several problems may arise.


A two-level topological decomposition for non-manifold simplicial shapes
This work presents a topological decomposition of a shape at two different levels, with different degrees of granularity, and investigates the relations among the components, and proposes a graph-based representation for such relations.
A Decomposition-based Approach to Modeling and Understanding Arbitrary Shapes
This work considers a representation for arbitrary shapes, that it is shown that the Manifold-Connected Decomposition (MC-decomposition), which is based on a unique decomposition of the shape into nearly manifold parts, provides a suitable basis for geometric reasoning and for homology computation on non-manifold shapes.
A stratification approach for modeling two-dimensional cell complexes
A decomposition-based representation for 3D simplicial complexes
A new representation for non-manifold 3D shapes described by three-dimensional simplicial complexes is defined, that is based on a unique decomposition of the simplicial complex into nearly manifold parts, and encodes the decomposition in an efficient and powerful two-level representation.
A Dimension-Independent Data Structure for Simplicial Complexes
A dimension-independent data structure for simplicial complexes, called the Incidence Simplicial (IS) data structure, is proposed, which is scalable to manifold complexes, and supports efficient navigation and topological modifications.

Two‐manifold cell‐decomposition of r‐sets.
This paper discusses the relationships studied between manifold solids and r‐sets by defining an r‐set as a decomposition in two‐manifold cells as a graph in which each node corresponds to a 2 manifold component of the regular set.
Data structures for simplicial complexes: an analysis and a comparison
This paper classify such representations, based on the dimension of the complexes they can encode, into dimension-independent structures, and data structures for three- and for two-dimensional simplicial complexes, according to the basic kinds of the topological entities they represent.

LR: compact connectivity representation for triangle meshes
This work provides an implementation of the set of standard random-access, constant-time operators for traversing a mesh, and shows that LR often saves both space and traversal time over competing representations.
