When I say aligning to the centroid, it means that during aligning A and B to standard coordinate, maybe the centroid of either A or B can be utilized to give the center of gravity for alignment.

After all, they're already both in R^3 and R^3 is a pretty standard coordinate system. > > Is A a transformation of B? If so, what does that transformation look like and why aren't there the same number of points before and after the transformation?
Actually A and B represents points on a surface of medical structure. Capturing the medical structure at different time wil not provide an aligned point set representastion. I have checked this, and the structure A and B are not aligned at the same axis. thts why I need to aligned them to a common axis/center of gravity so tht further processing can be done.
