Abstract : Curvature principal directions on geometric surfaces are a ubiquitous concept of Geometry Processing techniques. However they only account for order 2 differential quantities, oblivious of higher order differential behaviors. In this paper, we extend the concept of principal directions to higher orders for surfaces in R 3 by considering symmetric differential tensors. We further show how they can be explicitly approximated on point set surfaces and that they convey valuable geometric information, that can help the analysis of 3D surfaces.
