We introduce a Schrödinger operator for spectral approximation of meshes representing surfaces in 3D. The operator is obtained by modifying the Laplacian with a potential function which defines the rate of oscillation of the harmonics on different regions of the surface. We design the potential using a vertex ordering scheme which modulates the Fourier basis of a 3D mesh to focus on crucial regions of the shape having high-frequency structures and employ a sparse approximation framework to maximize compression performance. The combination of the spectral geometry of the Hamiltonian in conjunction with a sparse approximation approach outperforms existing spectral compression schemes.
