Stefan C. Schonsheck, Michael M. Bronstein, Rongjie Lai
2018 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we propose a variational model to align the Laplace-Beltrami (LB) eigensytems of two non-isometric genus zero shapes via conformal deformations.  ...  Our model is based on a novel basis pursuit scheme whereby we simultaneously compute a conformal deformation of a 'target shape' and its deformed LB eigensytem.  ...  Here we plot u where w 2 = e 2u for better visualization.
