Parameterization & Texturing
Originally investigated to automatically derive texture maps for surfaces, parameterizations are nowadays an universal tool and prerequisite for many geometry processing application. Our interest lies in energy functionals that capture length, angle and area distortions in mapping from a surface to texture space. Moreover, we explore texture mapping methods for inconsistent or fragmented surfaces as often encountered in practice. We also apply concepts and energy functionals from parameterizations to other areas of computer graphic as e.g. editing or surface deformations.
