Searching geometry-aware pants decomposition in different isotopy classes
Geometry Imaging and Computing
We propose an optimization framework to compute the desirable pants decomposition of surfaces. A pants decomposition partitions a surface into a set of genus-0 sub-patches with 3 boundaries. Any surface with non-trivial topology admits infinitely many pants decompositions that are isotopically inequivalent. We traverse different classes of pants decompositions to search for the optimal one with the pre-determined geometric criterion. Our proposed framework is general, and can be used todoi:10.4310/gic.2014.v1.n3.a3 fatcat:77hlmvdiejcyfgbj3fkzvfurfq
