Mesh vertices are usually represented with absolute coordinates. In some applications, this leads to problems for local operations because of global misalignment. We investigate the idea of describing mesh geometry in a differential way. These differential coordinates describe local properties of the geometry rather than the absolute position in space. The main application discussed here is the insertion of shape features from one mesh into another, given the meshes have the same connectivity… 
Linear rotation-invariant coordinates for meshes
TLDR
A rigid motion invariant mesh representation based on discrete forms defined on the mesh that enables linear shape interpolation that correctly handles rotations and demonstrates the effectiveness of the new representation with various detail-preserving editing operators and shape morphing.

Differential coordinates for interactive mesh editing
TLDR
This paper advocates the use of linear differential coordinates as means to preserve the high-frequency detail of the surface and shows that the linear least squares system can be solved fast enough to guarantee interactive response time thanks to a precomputed factorization of the coefficient matrix.
Laplacian Framework for Interactive Mesh Editing
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the linear reconstruction system can be solved fast enough to guarantee interactive response time thanks to a precomputed factorization of the coefficient matrix and enables to edit complex meshes while retaining the shape of the details in their natural orientation.

Morphing of Triangular Meshes in Shape Space
TLDR
A novel approach to morph between two isometric poses of the same non-rigid object given as triangular meshes is presented and it is proved that interpolating linearly in this shape space corresponds to the most isometric morph in ℝ3.
Feature-Preserving Mesh Deformation Using Normal-Controlled Coordinates
TLDR
A novel deformation algorithm is developed based on normal-controlled coordinates, which is efficient by subtly using vertex normals, and can be easily extended to industry applications, such as automobile modeling.
Dual Laplacian morphing for triangular meshes
TLDR
A novel morphing approach for 3D triangular meshes with the same topology that can generate visual pleasing and physical plausible morphing sequences and avoid the shrinkage and kinks appeared in the linear interpolation method.
Feature sensitive deformation for triangular mesh models
TLDR
A novel surface deformation method based on a feature sensitive (FS) metric is proposed, taking unit normal vectors into account, and a FS Laplacian operator is derived, which is more sensitive to featured regions of mesh models than existing operators.
Mesh denoising based on differential coordinates
TLDR
Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed Mesh Mean Filter does not cause surface shrinkage and shape distortion during the denoising process, and preserves geometric detail features to a certain extent.
