      Following rapidly changing target objects is a challenging problem in fluid control, especially when the natural fluid motion should be preserved. The fluid should be responsive to the changing configuration of the target ...
    • TAMRESH - Tensor Approximation Multiresolution Hierarchy for Interactive Volume Visualization 

      Suter, Susanne K.; Makhynia, Maxim; Pajarola, Renato (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      Interactive visual analysis of large and complex volume datasets is an ongoing and challenging problem. We tackle this challenge in the context of state-of-the-art out-of-core multiresolution volume rendering by introducing ...
    • Tangential Distance Fields for Mesh Silhouette Problems 

      Olson, M.; Zhang, H. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009)
      We consider a tangent-space representation of surfaces that maps each point on a surface to the tangent plane of the surface at that point. Such representations are known to facilitate the solution of several visibility ...
    • Tangible 3D: Hand Gesture Interaction for Immersive 3D Modeling 

      Kim, Hyosun; Albuquerque, Georgia; Havemann, Sven; Fellner, Dieter W. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
      Most of all interaction tasks relevant for a general three-dimensional virtual environment can be supported by 6DOF control and grab/select input. Obviously a very efficient method is direct manipulation with bare hands, ...
    • Tangible Heritage: Production of Astrolabes on a Laser Engraver 

      Zotti, G. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
      The astrolabe, an analog computing device, used to be the iconic instrument of astronomers during the Middle Ages. It allowed a multitude of operations of practical astronomy which were otherwise cumbersome to perform in ...
