slide2
Smooth Shapes and their Outlines

Can we say anything about a 3D shape

from the shape of its contour?

slide3
What are the contour stable features??

folds

cusps

T-junctions

Shadows

are like

silhouettes..

slide4
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
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.

slide6
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
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.
slide11
Normal sections and normal curvatures

Principal curvatures:

minimum value k

maximum value k

Gaussian curvature:

K = k k

slide12
The local shape of a smooth surface

Elliptic point

Hyperbolic point

K > 0

K < 0

K = 0

Parabolic point

slide13
The Gauss map

The Gauss map folds at parabolic points.

slide14
Smooth Shapes and their Outlines

Can we say anything about a 3D shape

from the shape of its contour?

slide15
Theorem [Koenderink, 1984]: the inflections of the silhouette

are the projections of parabolic points.

slide16
Koenderink’s Theorem (1984)

K = kk

r

c

Note: k > 0.

r

Corollary: K and k have

the same sign!

c
