Describing and Matching 2D Shapes by Their Points of Mutual Symmetry [chapter]

Arjan Kuijper, Ole Fogh Olsen
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A novel shape descriptor is introduced. It groups pairs of points that share a geometrical property that is based on their mutual symmetry.  ...  This diagram is a fingerprint of global symmetry between pairs of points along the shape.  ...  Introduction One method to describe 2D objects is by their outlines, or shapes. The complicated task of comparing objects then changes to comparing shapes.  ...

Feature-based correspondence: an eigenvector approach

Larry S Shapiro, J Michael Brady
1992 Image and Vision Computing  
We propose a novel method for performing point-.feature correspondence based on a modal shape description.  ...  Introducing shape information into a low-level matching proc'ess allows our algorithm to cope easily with rotutions and translutions in the image plane, yet still give a dense correspondence.  ...  LSS is supported by an ORS Award (UK) and by a Foundation for Research Development Scholarship (RSA).  ...

The Influence of a Network's Spatial Symmetry, Topological Dimension, and Density on Its Percolation Threshold

Dmitry O. Zhukov, Elena G. Andrianova, Sergey A. Lesko
2019 Symmetry  
It is observed that in 2D or 3D networks, which can be mutually transformed by deformation without breaking and forming new links, symmetry of similarity is observed, and the networks have the same percolation  ...  Regardless of the type of networks and their symmetry, transition from 2D to 3D structures engenders a change of percolation threshold by a value exp{−(d − 1)} that is invariant for transition between  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

SymmSketch: Creating symmetric 3D free-form shapes from 2D sketches

Yongwei Miao, Feixia Hu, Xudong Zhang, Jiazhou Chen, Renato Pajarola
2015 Computational Visual Media  
The reconstruction task usually separates a 3D symmetric shape into two types of shape components, that is, the self-symmetric shape component and the mutual-symmetric shape components.  ...  The z-depth information of the hand-drawn input sketches can be calculated using their property of mirror symmetry to generate 3D construction curves.  ...  The 3D models are courtesy of the Aim@Shape, Stanford University and Princeton University.  ...

Symmetry of "Twins"

2015 Symmetry  
The idea of construction of twin buildings is as old as architecture itself, and yet there is hardly any study emphasizing their specificity.  ...  We start analyzing a pair of twin buildings with projection of the architectural composition elements in 2D picture plane (plane of the composition) and we distinguish four 2D keyframe cases based on the  ...  Acknowledgments The authors express their gratitude to the Ministry of Science and Technological Development of Serbia for providing partial support for this project (Grant No. 174012, Grant No. 33051  ...

Perceptual grouping of circular arcs under projection

P. L. Rosin, G. A. W. West
1990 Procedings of the British Machine Vision Conference 1990  
Theories and techniques of shape constancy and shape from contour often assert that ellipses seen in an image are the 2D projection of 3D circles from the scene.  ...  Given this assumption, several methods for grouping ellipses are described. From these perceptual groups inferences about the 3D structure of their generating circles are made.  ...  Marr [11] grouped elements of his primal sketch using perceptual groupings. Kanade [9] used parallelism and skewed symmetry to help interpret 2D shapes as 3D objects.  ...

Multi-scale partial intrinsic symmetry detection

Kai Xu, Hao Zhang, Wei Jiang, Ramsay Dyer, Zhiquan Cheng, Ligang Liu, Baoquan Chen
2012 ACM Transactions on Graphics  
Abstract We present an algorithm for multi-scale partial intrinsic symmetry detection over 2D and 3D shapes, where the scale of a symmetric region is defined by intrinsic distances between symmetric points  ...  To identify prominent symmetric regions which overlap and vary in form and scale, we decouple scale extraction and symmetry extraction by performing two levels of clustering.  ...  Part of the 3D models in this paper is from the shape repositories of AIM@SHAPE and Stanford.  ...

Relating shapes via geometric symmetries and regularities

Art Tevs, Qixing Huang, Michael Wand, Hans-Peter Seidel, Leonidas Guibas
2014 ACM Transactions on Graphics  
We propose a new method based on the observation that symmetry and regularity in shapes is often associated with their function.  ...  Hence, they provide cues for matching related geometry even under strong shape variations. Correspondingly, we decomposes shapes into overlapping regions determined by their regularity properties.  ...  This work has been supported by NSF grants FODAVA 808515 and DMS 1228304, a Google research award, the Max Plack Center for Visual Computing and Communications, and the Cluster of Excellence "Multimodal  ...

In this framework images are considered as piecewise-constant 2D functions, tessellation of image frame by the set of non-intersected connected regions determines the "shape" of image and the projection  ...  Many practical applications require image matching "just by shape" with no dependence on the concrete intensity or color values.  ...  Proposed MSEMCC and MSCMCC measures are very close to mutual information by matching characteristics and shape of correlation field.  ...
