Tutorial on Surface Ricci Flow for Shape Registration and Analysis

David Gu
SUNY Stony Brook

Ricci flow is the geometric tool for the proof of Poincare's conjecture. Ricci flow algorithm is able to design Riemannian metrics using user prescribed curvatures. This tutorial will introduce the basic concepts, theorems, algorithm of surface Ricci flow, and its application for surface matching, registration and shape analysis.
