Maks Ovsjanikov: Some structural properties of functional map computation

In this talk, I will give a brief overview of the basic ideas behind the functional map framework and then describe some recent work that allows to both incorporate and extract additional information from functional maps. Namely, I will discuss a method to obtain functional maps that follow structural properties of pointwise correspondences, ways to encode embedding-dependent information and finally a technique to efficiently compute bidirectional correspondences using functional map adjoints.
