5905175 Digital Mesh Processing 3.0 3
Description Geometry processing, or mesh processing, is a fast-growing area of research that uses concepts from applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering to design efficient algorithms for the acquisition, reconstruction, analysis, manipulation, simulation, and transmission of complex 3D models. This course discusses the whole geometry processing pipeline based on triangle meshes, provides a comprehensive introduction to mesh processing, including their design, analysis, and implementation. We will focus on the challenges of processing polygonal meshes. In particular, we will look at different data-structures for representing meshes, we will review some essential topics in differential geometry. Topics include: ?surface representation ?Mesh Data structure ?Differential Geometry ?mesh smoothing ?mesh parameterization ?remeshing ?mesh simplification and Approximation ?mesh repair
