Recent advances in water wave animation, Chris Wojtan
Sprache des Titels:
This talk will give an overview of our group's recent progress in water wave animation. Existing methods for solving wave equations (like finite elements, finite differences, and spectral/Fourier methods) tend to fall short of the level of detail required for visual effects, or they fail to convincingly animate interactions with boundaries (like a wave reflecting off a rock).
Over the past few years, our group has experimented with new ways to animate water waves, including boundary integrals, wave packets and wavelets, and analytic solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations, and even simple geometric heuristics. During this talk, I will explain the problem and give an overview of our various methods and results.
