<p><b>Abstract</b>—We define a distance measure between 3D polygonal arcs of equal length, and show that the minimum value of this distance measure is the smallest eigenvalue of a certain matrix. Using this, we develop a mismatch measure and a matching algorithm for 3D polygonal arcs of unequal lengths.</p>
