Title: Partial matching of rigid shapes
Authors: A. M. Bronstein, M. M. Bronstein
Abstract: Matching of rigid shapes is an important problem in numerous applications across the boundary of computer vision, pattern recognition and computer graphics communities. A particularly challenging setting of this problem is partial matching, where the two shapes are dissimilar in general, but have significant similar parts. In this paper, we show an approach allowing to find matching parts of rigid shapes with controllable size and regularity. The regularity term we use is similar to the spirit of the Mumford-Shah functional. Numerical experiments show that the regularized partial matching produces better results compared to the non-regularized one.
