 Title: Approximating polygonal objects with deformable smooth surfaces Authors: TAN TONY Keywords: deformation, polygonal objects, alpha shape, approximation, union of balls, skin surfaces Issue Date: 25-Jul-2005 Source: TAN TONY (2005-07-25). Approximating polygonal objects with deformable smooth surfaces. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. Abstract: We propose a method to approximate a polygonal object with adeformable smooth surface, namely the t-skin defined byEdelsbrunner for all 0< t < 1. We guarantee that they arehomeomorphic and their Hausdorff distance is at most \epsilon>0.This construction makes it possible for fully automatic, smoothand robust deformation between two polygonal objects withdifferent topologies. En route to our results, we also give anapproximation of a polygonal object with a union of balls.
