Mission

The research group focuses on development of new methods for spatio-temporal data representation, manipulation and new data structures development using “meshless” approach in the fields of computer graphics and visualization and interpolation techniques.

The main goals of the project are:

Objectives

Objects in computer graphics are usually defined as a surface model using a surface description, e.g. polygonal meshes, parametric patches etc., or as a volumetric model using computer solid geometry etc. Available hardware is optimized actually for triangular meshes. Recently a surface of time varying objects was represented by a triangular mesh with a constant connectivity. It enables to make effective data representation, compression, transmission, decompression and rendering of such models.

In the discrete case, volumetric models are mostly considered, like CT and MRI images, standard techniques like marching cubes or tetrahedra are used and data are represented in regular or adaptive structured meshes.

This project is targeted to exploitation of meshless (meshfree) representations, manipulation, compression/reduction and rendering issues especially for scattered spatio-temporal data. As the meshless techniques are easily scalable to higher dimensions and handle spatial scattered data, research will be targeting also to spatial-temporal data, where quite new methods can be expected and applied also in many engineering computations and GIS systems etc.

Applicability of results:

There are several fields, where reached results should find direct applicability, especially in:

Also some results (especially theoretical ones) are expected to contribute to other fields, e.g.:
