    • The Macro-Regions: An Efficient Space Subdivision Structure for Ray Tracing 

      Devillers, Olivier (Eurographics Association, 1989)
      Ray tracing is the usual image synthesis technique which allows rendering of specular effects. The use of space subdivision for ray tracing optimization is studied. A new method of subdivision is proposed : the macro-regions. ...
    • A Macroblock Optimization for Grid-based Nonlinear Elasticity

      Steffan, Roland; Kuhlen, Torsten (The Eurographics Association, 2001)
      We introduce MAESTRO, a Virtual Reality based assembly simulation tool that comprises physically-based modeling, haptic feedback and artificial support mechanisms. The focus of this paper is on the developed support ...
    • Magic in Augmented Reality 

      Batalha, Joao; Dias, Miguel S. (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      In this paper we suggest a new approach for playing the "Magic The Gathering" game. This approach allows the user to perform a set of game moves within this popular card game using a Tangible Augmented Reality (AR) ...
    • Magical Mirrors 

      Michelis, D.; Send, H.; Resatsch, F.; Schildhauer, T. (The Eurographics Association, 2006)
      This article describes the multi-media art installation MAGICAL MIRRORS with which the tradition of the mirror, as a medium of visual simulation, is carried over into the world of digital mediums. As theoretical framework, ...
    • Magicsphere: an insight tool for 3D data visualization 

      Cignoni, P.; Montani, C.; Scopigno, R. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1994)
      How to render very complex datasets, and yet maintain interactive response times, is a hot topic in computer graphics. The MagicSphere idea originated as a solution to this problem, but its potential goes much further than ...
    • Magnetic Curves: Curvature-Controlled Aesthetic Curves Using Magnetic Fields 

      Xu, Ling; Mould, David (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      We describe 'magnetic curves', a particle-tracing method that creates curves with constantly changing curvature. It is well known that charged particles in a constant magnetic field trace out circular or helical trajectories. ...
    • Magnetic Flux Topology of 2D Point Dipoles 

      Bachthaler, Sven; Sadlo, Filip; Weeber, Rudolf; Kantorovich, Sofia; Holm, Christian; Weiskopf, Daniel (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2012)
      Magnetic fields exhibit higher-order, nonlinear singularities in the form of point-dipole singularities. In addition, due to absence of divergence, they feature only a subset of invariant structures from traditional vector ...
    • Magnetism and Minimal Surfaces -- a Different Tool for Surface Design 

      Gruber, Franz; Glaeser, Georg (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
      The design of free form surfaces is usually based on NURBS and it works well to quickly get shapes that a designer intends to create. Such surfaces then have desired properties like given border lines and C1 or C2 continuity ...
    • Mail Explorer - Spatial and Temporal Exploration of Electronic Mail 

      Keim, Daniel A.; Mansmann, Florian; Panse, Christian; Schneidewind, Jörn; Sips, Mike (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
      In today s world, e-mail has become one of the most important means of communication in business and private lives due to its efficiency. However, the problems start as soon as mail volumes go beyond the scope of human ...
