Slide2 l.jpg

Smooth Shapes and their Outlines

Can we say anything about a 3D shape

from the shape of its contour?


Slide3 l.jpg

What are the contour stable features??

folds

cusps

T-junctions

Shadows

are like

silhouettes..


Slide4 l.jpg

Differential geometry: geometry in the small

The normal to a curve

is perpendicular to the

tangent line.

A tangent is the limit

of a sequence of

secants.


Slide5 l.jpg

What can happen to a curve in the vicinity of a point?

(a) Regular point;

(b) inflection;

(c) cusp of the first kind;

(d) cusp of the second kind.

The Gauss Map

It maps points on a curve onto points on the unit circle.

The direction of traversal of the Gaussian image reverts

at inflections: it fold there.


Slide7 l.jpg

The curvature

C

  • C is the center of curvature;

  • R = CP is the radius of curvature;

  • k = lim dq/ds = 1/R is the curvature.


Slide8 l.jpg

Closed curves admit a canonical orientation..

k <0

k > 0


Slide9 l.jpg

Twisted curves are more complicated animals..


Slide10 l.jpg

A smooth surface, its tangent plane and its normal.


Slide11 l.jpg

Normal sections and normal curvatures

Principal curvatures:

minimum value k

maximum value k

Gaussian curvature:

K = k k

Slide12 l.jpg

The local shape of a smooth surface

Elliptic point

Hyperbolic point

K > 0

K < 0

K = 0

Parabolic point


Slide13 l.jpg

The Gauss map

The Gauss map folds at parabolic points.


Slide14 l.jpg

Smooth Shapes and their Outlines

Can we say anything about a 3D shape

from the shape of its contour?


Slide15 l.jpg

Theorem [Koenderink, 1984]: the inflections of the silhouette

are the projections of parabolic points.


Slide16 l.jpg

Koenderink’s Theorem (1984)

K = kk

r

c

Note: k > 0.

r

Corollary: K and k have

the same sign!

c
