Anisotropic Laplace-Beltrami eigenmaps: Bridging Reeb graphs and skeletons


In this paper we propose a novel approach of computing skeletons of robust topology for simply connected surfaces with boundary by constructing Reeb graphs from the eigen-functions of an anisotropic Laplace-Beltrami operator. Our work brings together the idea of Reeb graphs and skeletons by incorporating a flux-based weight function into the Laplace… (More)
