  • Shapes in Vector Fields 

    Martinez Esturo, Janick (Martinez Esturo, 2013-10-25)
    Geometric shapes are the basic building blocks of any graphicsrelated application.The effective manipulation of shapes is therefore of central interest formany relevant problems.In particular, there is a growing demand for ...
  • Bayesian and Quasi Monte Carlo Spherical Integration for Global Illumination 

    Marques, Ricardo (Marques, 2013-10-22)
    The spherical sampling of the incident radiance function entails a high computational cost. Therefore the illumination integral must be evaluated using a limited set of samples. Such a restriction raises the question of ...
