  • Consistent Partial Matching of Shape Collections via Sparse Modeling 

    Cosmo, L.; Rodolà, E.; Albarelli, A.; Mémoli, F.; Cremers, D. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
    Recent efforts in the area of joint object matching approach the problem by taking as input a set of pairwise maps, which are then jointly optimized across the whole collection so that certain accuracy and consistency ...
  • Partial Functional Correspondence 

    Rodolà, E.; Cosmo, L.; Bronstein, M. M.; Torsello, A.; Cremers, D. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
    In this paper, we propose a method for computing partial functional correspondence between non‐rigid shapes. We use perturbation analysis to show how removal of shape parts changes the Laplace–Beltrami eigenfunctions, and ...
  • Multi-Modal Perception for Selective Rendering 

    Harvey, Carlo; Debattista, Kurt; Bashford-Rogers, Thomas; Chalmers, Alan (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
    A major challenge in generating high‐fidelity virtual environments (VEs) is to be able to provide realism at interactive rates. The high‐fidelity simulation of light and sound is still unachievable in real time as such ...
  • Visualization and Quantification for Interactive Analysis of Neural Connectivity in Drosophila 

    Swoboda, N.; Moosburner, J.; Bruckner, S.; Yu, J. Y.; Dickson, B. J.; Bühler, K. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
    Neurobiologists investigate the brain of the common fruit fly to discover neural circuits and link them to complex behaviour. Formulating new hypotheses about connectivity requires potential connectivity information between ...
  • Accurate and Efficient Computation of Laplacian Spectral Distances and Kernels 

    Patané, Giuseppe (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
    This paper introduces the Laplacian spectral distances, as a function that resembles the usual distance map, but exhibits properties (e.g. smoothness, locality, invariance to shape transformations) that make them useful ...
  • Towards Globally Optimal Normal Orientations for Large Point Clouds 

    Schertler, Nico; Savchynskyy, Bogdan; Gumhold, Stefan (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
    Various processing algorithms on point set surfaces rely on consistently oriented normals (e.g. Poisson surface reconstruction). While several approaches exist for the calculation of normal directions, in most cases, their ...
  • Predicting Visual Perception of Material Structure in Virtual Environments 

    Filip, J.; Vávra, R.; Havlíček, M.; Krupička, M. (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
    One of the most accurate yet still practical representation of material appearance is the Bidirectional Texture Function (BTF). The BTF can be viewed as an extension of Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) ...
  • A Taxonomy and Survey of Dynamic Graph Visualization 

    Beck, Fabian; Burch, Michael; Diehl, Stephan; Weiskopf, Daniel (© 2017 The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
