This volume from the June 2005 conference consists of 30 full papers and ten short papers on shape reconstruction, implicit and subdivision surfaces A subdivision surface, in the field of 3D computer graphics, is a method of representing a smooth surface via the specification of a coarser piecewise linear polygon mesh. The smooth surface can be calculated from the coarse mesh as the limit of an iterative process of subdividing , surface meshes, and topological modeling. The studies explore mesh editing with an embedded Inserted into. See embedded system. network of curves, stochastic By guesswork; by chance; using or containing random values.
stochastic - probabilistic microgeometry for displacement mapping Displacement mapping is an alternative computer graphics technique in contrast to bump mapping, normal mapping, and parallax mapping, using a (procedural-) texture- or height map to cause an effect where the actual geometric position of points over the textured surface are , curvature-based energy functionals, and subdomain aware contour trees for time-dependent scalar fields Noun 1. scalar field - a field of scalars
field - (mathematics) a set of elements such that addition and multiplication are commutative and associative and multiplication is distributive over addition and there are two elements 0 and 1; "the set of all rational . Other topics include two-dimensional visibility charts for continuous curves, fast processing of triangle meshes using triangle fans, shape complexity based on mutual information, and epsilon-regular sets and intervals.
