Modeling and understanding complex non-manifold shapes is a key issue in shape analysis and retrieval. The topological structure of a non-manifold shape can be analyzed through its decomposition into a collection of components with a simpler topology. Here, we consider a representation for arbitrary shapes, that we call Manifold-Connected Decomposition (MC-decomposition), which is based on a unique decomposition of the shape into nearly manifold parts. We present efficient and powerfuldoi:10.2312/localchapterevents/italchap/italianchapconf2011/053-060 dblp:conf/egItaly/CaninoF11 fatcat:aaj6jk7uevc4pdfravrgntbm2i
