A spectral approach to shape-based retrieval of articulated 3D models
We present an approach for robust shape retrieval from databases containing articulated 3D models. Each shape is represented by the eigenvectors of an appropriately defined affinity matrix, forming a spectral embedding which achieves normalization against rigid-body transformations, uniform scaling, and shape articulation (i.e., bending). Retrieval is performed in the spectral domain using global shape descriptors. On the McGill database of articulated 3D shapes, the spectral approach leads to absolute improvement in retrieval performance for both the spherical harmonic and the light field shape descriptors. The best retrieval results are obtained using a simple and novel eigenvalue-based descriptor we propose. Key words: 3D Shape Retrieval, Bending Invariance, Geodesic Distance, Graph Distance, Shape Descriptor, Spectral Embedding
