INF574 Digital Representation and Analysis of Shapes (2022/23)

Mathieu Desbrun, Pooran Memari, and Maks Ovsjanikov

Practical Sessions (TD)

Course Description

This course will introduce the fundamental concepts for creating and analyzing shapes on the computer. We will start with generating and representing smooth curves in 2d using parametric and implicit (e.g. Bézier) curves. We will then move to various techniques for shape representation in 3d with special emphasis on triangle meshes and associated methods. At the same time, we will introduce methods for shape analysis and in particular defining and computing similarity between shapes, and shape matching (establishing correspondences between points on shapes). Topics will include:
