3 JZP About author Tao Ju: M.S. and Ph.D Rice UniversityAdvisor, Dr. Joe Warren B.S. Tsinghua University Research interests lie in the field of computer graphics and its applications in bio-medical research. Scott Schaefer: M.S. Computer Science Rice University 2003 Currently a Ph.D. B.S. Computer Science and Mathematics Trinity University 2000 Research interests lie in the field of computer graphics Joe Warren: Department of Computer Science6100 South MainRice niversity Research interests are centered around the general problem of representing geometric shape.
4 JZP About the work Given a closed Triangular Mesh, construct a function that interpolates a set of values defined at vertices of the mesh. Parameterize the interior points of the mesh.
5 JZP Illustration
6 JZP Previous works Let be points in the plane with arranged in an anticlockwise ordering Around.The points form a star -shaped polygon with in its kernel. Our Aim is to study sets of weights such that

14 JZP MVC for closed polygons
15 JZP MVC for closed polygons
16 JZP MVC for closed meshes Project surface onto sphere centered at v m = mean vector (integral of unit normal over spherical triangle) Symmetry:
17 JZP MVC for closed meshes Given spherical triangle, compute mean vector (integral of unit normal) Build wedge with face normals Apply Stokes’ Theorem,
18 JZP MVC for closed meshes Compute mean vector: Calculate weights By Sum over all triangles
26 JZP Conclusions and Future work Mean value coordinates are a simple,but powerful method for creating functions that interpolate values assigned to vertices of a closed mesh. One important generalization would be to derive mean value coordinates for piecewise linear mesh with arbitrary closed polygons as faces.
