Mean Curvature Flow Skeletonization

  • Date Completed: December 2013 (available in CGAL 4.7)

Given a closed triangulated surface mesh, the algorithm iteratively contracts the surface mesh along the surface mean curvature flow until convergence. A 1D skeleton is then extracted from the contracted surface. The skeleton encodes the topological information from the input surface mesh.

The initial implementation of this package is the result of the work of Xiang Gao during the 2013 season of the Google Summer of Code mentored by Andrea Tagliasacchi and S├ębastien Loriot.
