Paper Abstract

Spherical harmonics are introduced as a modeling tool. Their properties suggest that they are a representation well suited to object recognition. We explain how models are instantiated from inputted data sets and introduce a natural coordinate frame in which to build these models. We address the question of whether an object should be represented as a single model or be described rather as a collection of parts. As regards the latter, we define our understanding of what, in effect, constitutes a part. Finally we discuss the application of this representation to the tasks of object recognition and to scene rendering.
