Shape analysis plays a pivotal role in a large number of appli cations, ranging from traditional geometry processing to m ore recent 3D content management. In this scenario, spectral methods a re extremely promising as they provide a natural library of t o ls for shape analysis, intrinsically defined by the shape itself. I n particular, the eigenfunctions of the Laplace-Beltrami o perator yield a set of real valued functions that provide interesting insig hts in the structure and morphology of… CONTINUE READING
