|Physics-Based Modelling for Visual Computing
|3 - credits
A unified approach to various fields such as graphics, visualization, computer-aided geometric design, biomedical imaging, vision, and virtual environment. The course will explore select research topics centered on physics-based modeling methodology and associated computational methods for theoretical and practical problems in widespread areas of visual computing. The emphasis will be on: geometric and solid modeling, geometric design techniques, wavelets and multi-resolution analysis, deformable models based on mathematical physics, variational analysis, optimization methods, numerical simulation with finite-difference and finite-element algorithms, differential equations for initial-value and boundary-value problems, force-driven interaction with constraints, dynamic sculpting system, and a large variety of applications for visual computing.
