  • Unknown author (Blackwell Publishers Ltd and the Eurographics Association., 2002)
  • Scopigno, Roberto (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    The recent evolution of graphics technology makes it possible to manage very complex models on inexpensive platforms. These impressive rendering capabilities should be paired with detailed and accurate digital models. The ...
  • Ertl, Thomas (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    One of the main scientific goals of visualization is the development of algorithms and appropriate data models which facilitate interactive visual analysis and direct manipulation of the increasingly large data sets which ...
  • Terzopoulos, Demetri (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    The confluence of virtual reality and artificial life, an emerging discipline that spans the computational and biological sciences, has yielded synthetic worlds inhabited by realistic, artificial flora and fauna. Artificial ...
  • Takahashi, Shigeo; Ohta, Naoya; Nakamura, Hiroko; Takeshima, Yuriko; Fujishiro, Issei (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    It is still challenging to generate hand-drawn pictures because they differ from ordinary photographs in that they are often drawn as seen from multiple viewpoints. This paper presents a new approach for modeling such ...
  • Isenberg, Tobias; Halper, Nick; Strothotte, Thomas (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    A way to create effective stylized line drawings is to draw strokes that start and stop at visible portions along the silhouette of an object to be portrayed. In computer graphics to date, algorithms to extract silhouette ...
  • Martin, D.; Fekete, J.D.; Torres, J. C. (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    An important research area in non-photorealistic rendering is the obtention of silhouettes. There are many methods to do this using 3D models and raster structures, but these are limited in their ability to create stylised ...
  • Lee, Y.; Lee, S. (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    Feature detection is important in various mesh processing techniques, such as mesh editing, mesh morphing, mesh compression, and mesh signal processing. In spite of much research in computer vision, automatic feature ...
  • Shlafman, Shymon; Tal, Ayellet; Katz, Sagi (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    This paper describes an algorithm for morphing polyhedral surfaces based on their decompositions into patches. The given surfaces need neither be genus-zero nor two-manifolds. We present a new algorithm for decomposing ...
  • Bordoloi, Udeepta; Shen, Han-Wei (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    This paper presents an interactive global visualization technique for dense vector fields using levels of detail. We introduce a novel scheme which combines an error-controlled hierarchical approach and hardware acceleration ...
  • Theisel, H. (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    We introduce a scheme of control polygons to design topological skeletons for vector fields of arbitrary topology. Based on this we construct piecewise linear vector fields of exactly the topology specified by the control ...
  • Karpenko, Olga; Hughes, John F.; Raskar, Ramesh (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    With the advent of sketch-based methods for shape construction, there's a new degree of power available in the rapid creation of approximate shapes. Sketch [Zeleznik, 1996] showed how a gesture-based modeler could be used ...
  • Daubert, Katja; Seidel, Hans-Peter (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    We present a hardware-based, volumetric approach for rendering knit wear at very interactive rates. A single stitch is represented by a volumetric texture with each voxel storing the main direction of the strands of yarn ...
  • Streit, L.; Heidrich, W. (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    Feathers, unlike other cutaneous appendages such as hair, fur, or scales have a definite structure. Variation in feather structure creates a wide range of resulting appearances. Collectively, feather structure determines ...
  • Scheel, Annette; Stamminger, Marc; Seidel, Hans-Peter (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    Radiosity methods handle large scenes and complex objects using clustering techniques. To reconstruct a high quality image, usually a second very time consuming final gather pass is applied which exactly recomputes the ...
  • Kollig, Thomas; Keller, Alexander (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    Image synthesis often requires the Monte Carlo estimation of integrals. Based on a generalized concept of stratification we present an efficient sampling scheme that consistently outperforms previous techniques. This is ...
  • Hey, Heinrich; Purgathofer, Werner (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    We present a new method to compute radiance in photon map based global illumination simulation for polygonal scenes with general bidirectional scattering distribution functions (BSDFs). Our new radiance estimation uses the ...
  • Desbrun, Mathieu; Meyer, Mark; Alliez, Pierre (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    Parameterization of discrete surfaces is a fundamental and widely-used operation in graphics, required, for instance, for texture mapping or remeshing. As 3D data becomes more and more detailed, there is an increased need ...
  • Kelemen, Csaba; Szirmay-Kalos, Laszlo; Antal, Gyorgy; Csonka, Ferenc (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    This paper presents a new mutation strategy for the Metropolis light transport algorithm, which works in the unit cube of pseudo-random numbers instead of mutating in the path space. This transformation makes the integrand ...
  • Wang, Jianning; Oliveira, Manuel M. (Blackwell Publishers, Inc and the Eurographics Association, 2002)
    The modeling of real scenes is a complex and challenging task for which the use of laser rangefinders is one of the most promising approaches. Unfortunately, in many situations, it is not possible or practical to guarantee ...
