Registration is the problem of bringing together two or more 3D shapes, either of the same object or of two different but similar objects. This chapter first introduces the classical Iterative Closest Point (ICP) algorithm which represents the gold standard registration method. Current limitations of ICP are addressed and the most popular variants of ICP are described to improve the basic implementation in several ways. Challenging registration scenarios are analyzed and a taxonomy of recent

The first case study describes a simple but effective technique to detect outliers. The second case study uses the Levenberg-Marquardt optimization procedure to solve standard pairwise registration. The third case study focuses on the challenging problem of deformable object registration. Finally, open issues and directions for future work are discussed and conclusions are drawn.
