Spectral methods are used in computer graphics, machine learning, and computer vision, where many important problems boil down to constructing a Laplacian operator and finding its eigenvalues and eigenfunctions. We show how to generalize spectral geometry to multiple data spaces. Our construction is based on the idea of simultaneous diagonalization of Laplacian operators. We describe this problem and discuss numerical methods for its solution. We provide several synthetic and real examples of manifold learning, object classification, and clustering, showing that the joint spectral geometry better captures the inherent structure of multi-modal data.
