(LaTeX) Abstract:
Accurate estimations of geometric properties of a surface from
its discrete approximation are important for many computer graphics and
geometric modeling applications.
In this paper,
we derive exact quadrature formulae for mean curvature,
Gaussian curvature, and the Taubin integral representation of the curvature tensor.
The exact quadratures are then used to obtain reliable estimates
of the curvature tensor of a smooth surface approximated by a dense triangle
mesh. The proposed method is fast and
easy to implement. It is highly competitive with
conventional curvature tensor estimation approaches.

Additionally, we show that the curvature tensor approximated as proposed by us
converges towards the true curvature tensor as the edge lengths tend to zero.
