Finally we prove the shape spectrum is a continuous function to a scale function on the conformal factor of the manifold. The derivatives of the eigenvalues are analytically expressed with those of the scale function. The property applies to both continuous domain and discrete triangle meshes. On the triangle meshes, a spectrum alignment algorithm is developed. Given two closed triangle meshes, the eigenvalues can be aligned from one to the other and the eigenfunction distributions are aligned as well. This extends the shape spectra across non-isometric deformations, supporting a registration-free analysis of general motion data.

"Shape optimization and spectral theory" is a survey book aiming to give an overview of recent results in spectral geometry and its links with shape optimization. It covers most of the issues which are important for people working in PDE and differential geometry interested in sharp inequalities and qualitative behaviour for eigenvalues of the Laplacian with different kind of boundary conditions (Dirichlet, Robin and Steklov). This includes: existence of optimal shapes, their regularity, the case of special domains like triangles, isospectrality, quantitative form of the isoperimetric inequalities, optimal partitions, universal inequalities and numerical results. Much progress has been made in these extremum problems during the last ten years and this edited volume presents a valuable update to a wide community interested in these topics.

It is known that to any Riemannian manifold (M, g ) , with or without boundary, one can associate certain fundamental objects. Among them are the Laplace-Beltrami opera tor and the Hodge-de Rham operators, which are natural [that is, they commute with the isometries of (M,g)], elliptic, self-adjoint second order differential operators acting on the space of real valued smooth functions on M and the spaces of smooth differential forms on M, respectively. If M is closed, the spectrum of each such operator is an infinite divergent sequence of real numbers, each eigenvalue being repeated according to its finite multiplicity. Spectral Geometry is concerned with the spectra of these operators, also the extent to which these spectra determine the geometry of (M, g) and the topology of M. This problem has been translated by several authors (most notably M. Kac). into the col loquial question "Can one hear the shape of a manifold?" because of its analogy with the wave equation. This terminology was inspired from earlier results of H. Weyl. It is known that the above spectra cannot completely determine either the geometry of (M , g) or the topology of M. For instance, there are examples of pairs of closed Riemannian manifolds with the same spectra corresponding to the Laplace-Beltrami operators, but which differ substantially in their geometry and which are even not homotopically equiva lent.

We propose using the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator as an extrinsic alternative to the Laplacian for spectral geometry processing and shape analysis. Intrinsic approaches, usually based on the Laplace-Beltrami operator, cannot capture the spatial embedding of a shape up to rigid motion, and many previous extrinsic methods lack theoretical justification. Instead, we consider the Steklov eigenvalue problem, computing the spectrum of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator of a surface bounding a volume. A remarkable property of this operator is that it completely encodes volumetric geometry. We use the boundary element method (BEM) to discretize the operator, accelerated by hierarchical numerical schemes and preconditioning; this pipeline allows us to solve eigenvalue and linear problems on large-scale meshes despite the density of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann discretization. We further demonstrate that our operators naturally fit into existing frameworks for geometry processing, making a shift from intrinsic to extrinsic geometry as simple as substituting the Laplace-Beltrami operator with the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator.

**On Perturbative Methods in Spectral Geometry**

The goal of spectral geometry is to establish how much information about the geometry of compact Riemannian manifolds is contained in the spectra of natural differential operators, especially Laplacians, defined on them. Ideally, one would like to be able to recover the Riemannian manifold, up to isometry, from the spectra of one or several such operators. This would be a very powerful result, as it would introduce an invariant way to describe the shape of Riemannian manifolds. The consequences of such a result would range from practical applications such as shape recognition to theoretical insights into quantum gravity. However, the most general form of such statements is known to be false. There are a number of known counterexamples, that is isospectral but not isometric manifolds. Indeed, there are even techniques to construct such counterexamples. Nonetheless, it is believed that almost all Riemannian manifolds can be identified by their spectra. In other words, the counterexamples are expected to be exceedingly rare special cases. This has been shown to be the case in some restricted classes of manifolds. The proof in the general case has remained elusive. The main goal of this thesis is to move towards such a proof by studying the structure of isospectral sets of metrics. The main tool we use for this purpose is perturbation theory, a method ubiquitous in physics, but strangely underused in spectral geometry. Consequently, a secondary goal of this work is to demonstrate the usefulness of perturbation theory to the study of spectral geometry. We begin by a numerical exploration of spectral geometry in a perturbative regime. Then, we show that sets of isospectral conformally equivalent metrics on boundaryless manifolds of dimension two contain no convex subsets. This is an entirely new type of result in spectral geometry. We argue that it could lead to a proof of the rarity of counterexamples in the program of identifying shapes by their spectra. The thesis also includes reviews of the fundamentals of the spectral theory of Laplace-type operators, of major results in spectral geometry and of perturbation theory.

This book is an introduction to the simple math patterns that can be used to describe fundamental, stable spectral-orbital physical systems (represented as discrete hyperbolic shapes, i.e., hyperbolic space-forms), the containment set has many dimensions, and these dimensions possess macroscopic geometric properties (where hyperbolic metric-space subspaces are modeled to be discrete hyperbolic shapes). Thus, it is a description that transcends the idea of materialism (i.e., it is higher-dimensional so that the higher dimensions are not small), and it is a math context can also be used to model a life-form as a unified, high-dimension, geometric construct that generates its own energy and which has a natural structure for memory where this construct is made in relation to the main property of the description being, in fact, the spectral properties of both (1) material systems and of (2) the metric-spaces, which contain the material systems where material is simply a lower dimension metric-space and where both material-components and metric-spaces are in resonance with (and define) the containing space.

Exact algorithms for dealing with geometric objects are complicated, hard to implement in practice, and slow. Over the last 20 years a theory of geometric approximation algorithms has emerged. These algorithms tend to be simple, fast, and more robust than their exact counterparts. This book is the first to cover geometric approximation algorithms in detail. In addition, more traditional computational geometry techniques that are widely used in developing such algorithms, like sampling, linear programming, etc., are also surveyed. Other topics covered include approximate nearest-neighbor search, shape approximation, coresets, dimension reduction, and embeddings. The topics covered are relatively independent and are supplemented by exercises. Close to 200 color figures are included in the text to illustrate proofs and ideas.
