I will present a recently developed method that detects symmetry in, potentially noisy, 3D scalar fields without an explicit construction of the corresponding geometric transformation. The key ingredient in the algorithm is a data structure called the augmented extremum graph that captures both topological and geometric properties of the scalar field. I will also briefly discuss other methods that we have developed to identify symmetric regions and also demonstrate applications to symmetry-aware volume rendering, isosurface extraction, query-based exploration, linked selection and volume editing.
Research Seminar Announcement
In the course of the Visual Computing research seminar Prof. Dr. Nils Thuerey from the Technical University of Munich will give a talk with subsequent discussion about the topic Fluid Simulations and Neural Networks.
We would like to invite everyone interested to join us. The research seminar will take place in on Friday 30.06.2017, 13:15 in G29-R335.
