Hi all, I'm trying to implement section 2.3 of this paper. I'm doing it in the process of trying to implement another multiresolution mesh processing paper. The problem is essentially as follows. I have a mesh (M^{j-1}) that is a simplified (e.g. coarsened or decimated) version of a mesh M^{j}. Additionally, I'm given a set of points P = {p_{0}, ... , p_{k}} which correspond to vertex positions in the mesh M^{j} which have been removed in M^{j-1}. The goal is to encode the positions of the points in P such that each is expressed as a set of barycentric coordinates over some triangle in M^{j-1} and some height in the direction of the phong normal field over this triangle. In other words, I'm trying to find a triangle in M^{j-1} and a set of barycentric coordinates in this triangle such that a point from the original mesh resides strictly in the normal direction at this point. The paper claims this can be done using a few steps of Newton iteration, but the setup of the problem is not immediately clear to me from the paper (granted, I'm running on a bit less sleep than usual). Any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers, Rob [Edited by - gfxnomad on December 6, 2009 1:36:53 PM]

Does anyone have any ideas on this. I'm really sort of stuck. In addition, I think that the equations for Fu Fv Fuu Fvv, and Fuv in the paper (in section 2.3) may also be incorrect; as Fu seems to have no actual dependence on u !

Cheers,
Rob
