Numerical Simulation for Graphics and Animation
Wednesdays 14:30-16:30 in Taub 8
A (2 hour/week for 13 weeks) practical course on the various methods, challenges and applications of modelling the motion of physical objects and the evolution of physical processes in the computer, with a focus on the kinds of phenomena one encounters in graphics and animation. We will work through a number of interesting examples; from their mathematical modelling, to the discretisation and numerical solution of the resulting model, all the way to the visualisation and study of the results.
The language of instruction is English.
