Floating Point Geometric Algorithms for Topologically Correct Scientific Visualization

pdf-format:
Dokument 1.pdf (283 KB)


Abstract

The unresolved subtleties of floating point computations in geometric modeling become considerably more difficult in animations and scientific visualizations. Some emerging solutions based upon topological considerations will be presented. A novel geometric seeding algorithm for Newton's method was used in experiments to determine feasible support for these visualization applications.
