Animation and Scientific Visualization : Tools and Applications
This work covers a broad range of visualization topics, with the emphasis on practical examples and experience. It shows how animation and visualization are used both as an aid to the scientist in the presentation and explanation of their work, and in terms of the application of techniques to real problems. This book should be of interest to all researchers and practitioners in computer graphics and scientific computing.
