AbstractWe introduce a new bending invariant representation of a triangular mesh S. The bending invariant mesh X of S is a deformation of S that has the property that the geodesic distance between each pair of vertices on S is approximated well by the Euclidean distance between the corresponding vertices on X. Furthermore, X is intersection-free. The main advantage of the bending invariant mesh compared to previous approaches is that mesh-based features on X can be used to facilitate applications such as shape recognition or shape registration. We apply bending invariant meshes to find dense point-to-point correspondences between a number of deformed surfaces corresponding to different postures of the same non-rigid object in a fully automatic way.
