Spectral Mesh Processing

SIGGRAPH 2010 course

Spectral mesh processing was proposed at the beginning of the 1990s to port the “signal processing toolbox” to 3D mesh models. Now, with recent advances in computing power and numerical software, this vision can be fully implemented. In this course, attendees learn how to transfer the underlying concepts to the mesh-model setting, how to implement the “spectral mesh processing” toolbox, and how to use it for real applications, including filtering, shape matching, remeshing, segmentation, and parameterization.

A previous version of this course was also given at SIGGRAPH ASIA 2009 in Yokohama, Japan.
