VoroCrust: Voronoi Meshing Without Clipping.

ACM Trans Graph 2020 May;39(3)

University of California, Davis and Sandia National Laboratories.

Polyhedral meshes are increasingly becoming an attractive option with particular advantages over traditional meshes for certain applications. What has been missing is a robust polyhedral meshing algorithm that can handle broad classes of domains exhibiting arbitrary curved boundaries and sharp features. In addition, the power of primal-dual mesh pairs, exemplified by Voronoi-Delaunay meshes, has been recognized as an important ingredient in numerous formulations. Read More

Tensor Maps for Synchronizing Heterogeneous Shape Collections.

ACM Trans Graph 2019 Jul;38(4)

The University of Texas at Austin, 2317 Speedway, Austin, TX, 78712, USA.

Establishing high-quality correspondence maps between geometric shapes has been shown to be the fundamental problem in managing geometric shape collections. Prior work has focused on computing efficient maps between pairs of shapes, and has shown a quantifiable benefit of joint map synchronization, where a collection of shapes are used to improve (denoise) the pairwise maps for consistency and correctness. However, these existing map synchronization techniques place very strong assumptions on the input shapes collection such as all the input shapes fall into the same category and/or the majority of the input pairwise maps are correct.

Fast and Exact Continuous Collision Detection with Bernstein Sign Classification.

ACM Trans Graph 2014 Nov;33(6)

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

We present fast algorithms to perform accurate CCD queries between triangulated models. Our formulation uses properties of the Bernstein basis and Bézier curves and reduces the problem to evaluating signs of polynomials. We present a geometrically exact CCD algorithm based on the exact geometric computation paradigm to perform reliable Boolean collision queries. Read More

Perception of Perspective Distortions in Image-Based Rendering.

ACM Trans Graph 2013 Jul;32(4)

REVES/INRIA Sophia-Antipolis ; University of Giessen ; MPI Informatik.

Image-based rendering (IBR) creates realistic images by enriching simple geometries with photographs, e.g., mapping the photograph of a building façade onto a plane. Read More

Optimizing Locomotion Controllers Using Biologically-Based Actuators and Objectives.

ACM Trans Graph 2012 Jul;31(4)

Stanford University.

We present a technique for automatically synthesizing walking and running controllers for physically-simulated 3D humanoid characters. The sagittal hip, knee, and ankle degrees-of-freedom are actuated using a set of eight Hill-type musculotendon models in each leg, with biologically-motivated control laws. The parameters of these control laws are set by an optimization procedure that satisfies a number of locomotion task terms while minimizing a biological model of metabolic energy expenditure.

Using Blur to Affect Perceived Distance and Size.

ACM Trans Graph 2010 Mar;29(2)

University of California, San Francisco and University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720.

We present a probabilistic model of how viewers may use defocus blur in conjunction with other pictorial cues to estimate the absolute distances to objects in a scene. Our model explains how the pattern of blur in an image together with relative depth cues indicates the apparent scale of the image's contents. From the model, we develop a semiautomated algorithm that applies blur to a sharply rendered image and thereby changes the apparent distance and scale of the scene's contents. Read More

Optimizing Cubature for Efficient Integration of Subspace Deformations.

ACM Trans Graph 2009 Dec;27(5):165

Cornell University.

We propose an efficient scheme for evaluating nonlinear subspace forces (and Jacobians) associated with subspace deformations. The core problem we address is efficient integration of the subspace force density over the 3D spatial domain. Similar to Gaussian quadrature schemes that efficiently integrate functions that lie in particular polynomial subspaces, we propose cubature schemes (multi-dimensional quadrature) optimized for efficient integration of force densities associated with particular subspace deformations, particular materials, and particular geometric domains.

Discovering Structural Regularity in 3D Geometry.

ACM Trans Graph 2008 Aug;27(3)

ETH Zurich.

We introduce a computational framework for discovering regular or repeated geometric structures in 3D shapes. We describe and classify possible regular structures and present an effective algorithm for detecting such repeated geometric patterns in point- or mesh-based models. Our method assumes no prior knowledge of the geometry or spatial location of the individual elements that define the pattern. Read More

Misperceptions in Stereoscopic Displays: A Vision Science Perspective.

ACM Trans Graph 2008 Jan;2008:23-32

University of California, Berkeley.

3d shape and scene layout are often misperceived when viewing stereoscopic displays. For example, viewing from the wrong distance alters an object's perceived size and shape. It is crucial to understand the causes of such misperceptions so one can determine the best approaches for minimizing them. Read More

Meshless Animation of Fracturing Solids.

ACM Trans Graph 2005 Jul;24(3):957-964

Stanford University.

We present a new meshless animation framework for elastic and plastic materials that fracture. Central to our method is a highly dynamic surface and volume sampling method that supports arbitrary crack initiation, propagation, and termination, while avoiding many of the stability problems of traditional mesh-based techniques. We explicitly model advancing crack fronts and associated fracture surfaces embedded in the simulation volume. Read More
