  • Computing Feasible Trajectories for an Articulated Probe in Three Dimensions
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-11-23
    Ovidiu Daescu; Ka Yaw Teo

    Consider an input consisting of a set of $n$ disjoint triangular obstacles in $\mathbb{R}^3$ and a target point $t$ in the free space, all enclosed by a large sphere $S$ of radius $R$ centered at $t$. An articulated probe is modeled as two line segments $ab$ and $bc$ connected at point $b$. The length of $ab$ can be equal to or greater than $R$, while $bc$ is of a given length $r \leq R$. The probe

    Ovidiu Daescu; Ka Yaw Teo

    An articulated probe is modeled in the plane as two line segments, $ab$ and $bc$, joined at $b$, with $ab$ being very long, and $bc$ of some small length $r$. We investigate a trajectory planning problem involving the articulated two-segment probe where the length $r$ of $bc$ can be customized. Consider a set $P$ of simple polygonal obstacles with a total of $n$ vertices, a target point $t$ located

    We prove that for every $m$ there is a finite point set $\mathcal{P}$ in the plane such that no matter how $\mathcal{P}$ is three-colored, there is always a disk containing exactly $m$ points, all of the same color. This improves a result of Pach, Tardos and T\'oth who proved the same for two colors. The main ingredient of the construction is a subconstruction whose points are in convex position. Namely

  • The Interconnectivity Vector: A Finite-Dimensional Vector Representation of Persistent Homology
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-11-23
    Megan Johnson; Jae-Hun Jung

    Persistent Homology (PH) is a useful tool to study the underlying structure of a data set. Persistence Diagrams (PDs), which are 2D multisets of points, are a concise summary of the information found by studying the PH of a data set. However, PDs are difficult to incorporate into a typical machine learning workflow. To that end, two main methods for representing PDs have been developed: kernel methods

    What functions, when applied to the pairwise Manhattan distances between any $n$ points, result in the Manhattan distances between another set of $n$ points? In this paper, we show that a function has this property if and only if it is Bernstein. This class of functions admits several classical analytic characterizations and includes $f(x) = x^s$ for $0 \leq s \leq 1$ as well as $f(x) = 1-e^{-xt}$

    Designing a robot or structure that can fold itself into a target shape is a process that involves challenges originated from multiple sources. For example, the designer of rigid self-folding robots must consider foldability from geometric and kinematic aspects to avoid self-intersection and undesired deformations.

    Cartograms are map-based data visualizations in which the area of each map region is proportional to an associated numeric data value (e.g., population or gross domestic product). A cartogram is called contiguous if it conforms to this area principle while also keeping neighboring regions connected.

    We consider minimum-cardinality Manhattan connected sets with arbitrary demands: Given a collection of points $P$ in the plane, together with a subset of pairs of points in $P$ (which we call demands), find a minimum-cardinality superset of $P$ such that every demand pair is connected by a path whose length is the $\ell_1$-distance of the pair. This problem is a variant of three well-studied problems

  • A note on optimal degree-three spanners of the square lattice
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-26
    Damien Galant; Cédric Pilatte

    In this short note, we prove that the degree-three dilation of the square lattice $\mathbb{Z}^2$ is $1+\sqrt{2}$. This disproves a conjecture of Dumitrescu and Ghosh. We give a computer-assisted proof of a local-global property for the uncountable set of geometric graphs achieving the optimal dilation.

  • Drawing Two Posets
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-24
    Guido Brückner; Vera Chekan

    We investigate the problem of drawing two posets of the same ground set so that one is drawn from left to right and the other one is drawn from the bottom up. The input to this problem is a directed graph $G = (V, E)$ and two sets $X, Y$ with $X \cup Y = E$, each of which can be interpreted as a partial order of $V$. The task is to find a planar drawing of $G$ such that each directed edge in $X$ is

  • How to Find the Convex Hull of All Integer Points in a Polyhedron?
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-25
    S. O. Semenov; N. Yu. Zolotykh

    We propose a cut-based algorithm for finding all vertices and all facets of the convex hull of all integer points of a polyhedron defined by a system of linear inequalities. Our algorithm DDM Cuts is based on the Gomory cuts and the dynamic version of the double description method. We describe the computer implementation of the algorithm and present the results of computational experiments comparing

  • Correspondence Learning via Linearly-invariant Embedding
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-25
    Riccardo Marin; Marie-Julie Rakotosaona; Simone Melzi; Maks Ovsjanikov

    In this paper, we propose a fully differentiable pipeline for estimating accurate dense correspondences between 3D point clouds. The proposed pipeline is an extension and a generalization of the functional maps framework. However, instead of using the Laplace-Beltrami eigenfunctions as done in virtually all previous works in this domain, we demonstrate that learning the basis from data can both improve

  • Geometric Separability using Orthogonal Objects
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-23
    Abidha V P; Pradeesha Ashok

    Given a bichromatic point set $P=\textbf{R}$ $ \cup$ $ \textbf{B}$ of red and blue points, a separator is an object of a certain type that separates $\textbf{R}$ and $\textbf{B}$. We study the geometric separability problem when the separator is a) rectangular annulus of fixed orientation b) rectangular annulus of arbitrary orientation c) square annulus of fixed orientation d) orthogonal convex polygon

  • Primal-Dual Mesh Convolutional Neural Networks
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-23
    Francesco Milano; Antonio Loquercio; Antoni Rosinol; Davide Scaramuzza; Luca Carlone

    Recent works in geometric deep learning have introduced neural networks that allow performing inference tasks on three-dimensional geometric data by defining convolution, and sometimes pooling, operations on triangle meshes. These methods, however, either consider the input mesh as a graph, and do not exploit specific geometric properties of meshes for feature aggregation and downsampling, or are specialized

  • A 4-Approximation of the $\frac{2π}{3}$-MST
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-22
    Stav Ashur; Matthew J. Katz

    Bounded-angle (minimum) spanning trees were first introduced in the context of wireless networks with directional antennas. They are reminiscent of bounded-degree spanning trees, which have received significant attention. Let $P = \{p_1,\ldots,p_n\}$ be a set of $n$ points in the plane, let $\Pi$ be the polygonal path $(p_1,\ldots,p_n)$, and let $0 < \alpha < 2\pi$ be an angle. An $\alpha$-spanning

  • MINVO Basis: Finding Simplexes with Minimum Volume Enclosing Polynomial Curves
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-21
    Jesus Tordesillas; Jonathan P. How

    Outer polyhedral representations of a given polynomial curve are extensively exploited in computer graphics rendering, computer gaming, path planning for robots, and finite element simulations. B\'ezier curves (which use the Bernstein basis) or B-Splines are a very common choice for these polyhedral representations because their non-negativity and partition-of-unity properties guarantee that each interval

  • Tangent Quadrics in Real 3-Space
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-21
    Taylor Brysiewicz; Claudia Fevola; Bernd Sturmfels

    We examine quadratic surfaces in 3-space that are tangent to nine given figures. These figures can be points, lines, planes or quadrics. The numbers of tangent quadrics were determined by Hermann Schubert in 1879. We study the associated systems of polynomial equations, also in the space of complete quadrics, and we solve them using certified numerical methods. Our aim is to show that Schubert's problems

    Milad Bakhshizadeh; Ali Kamalinejad; Mina Latifi

    Uniform distribution of the points has been of interest to researchers for a long time and has applications in different areas of Mathematics and Computer Science. One of the well-known measures to evaluate the uniformity of a given distribution is Discrepancy, which assesses the difference between the Uniform distribution and the empirical distribution given by putting mass points at the points of

  • GAMesh: Guided and Augmented Meshing for Deep Point Networks
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-19
    Nitin Agarwal; M Gopi

    We present a new meshing algorithm called guided and augmented meshing, GAMesh, which uses a mesh prior to generate a surface for the output points of a point network. By projecting the output points onto this prior and simplifying the resulting mesh, GAMesh ensures a surface with the same topology as the mesh prior but whose geometric fidelity is controlled by the point network. This makes GAMesh

  • Stability of 2-Parameter Persistent Homology
    arXiv.cs.CG Pub Date : 2020-10-19
    Andrew J. Blumberg; Michael Lesnick

    The \v{C}ech and Rips constructions of persistent homology are stable with respect to perturbations of the input data. However, neither is robust to outliers, and both can be insensitive to topological structure of high-density regions of the data. A natural solution is to consider 2-parameter persistence. This paper studies the stability of 2-parameter persistent homology: We show that several related
