This function implements the point sampling strategy from Gelfand et. al. 2003. The algorithm targets a point cloud sampling of the model for registration using the ICP algorithm. The method is described in the paper "Geometrically Stable Sampling for the ICP Algorithm", 3DIM 2003. The idea is to sample the points by constraining the eigenvectors of the covariance matrix of the torque and force. The details and relation to the paper are given in the comments.
