This course is a BMS advanced course and the lectures will be in English. Please feel free to ask any questions in English or German. News
ContentsFoundations for the visualization of curves and surfaces as well as for fluid simulation are treated. This includes certain topics of discrete differential geometry as e.g. discrete surfaces or discrete exterior calculus. As visualization tool we will use Houdini. A free version can be downloaded from the here. The programming languages we use will be python and VEX. The course is quite interdisciplinary, but needs in principle not much more then linear algebra and basic programming skills. Background in differential geometry is recommended. MaterialThere is a course blog where also tutorials and homework exercises will be published. For questions on Houdini and programming vex see the Houdini Tech Blog (an extended version of the DDG2016 blog). Other useful blogs are the following:
Homework policyThere will be small programming projects every week. Depending on the number of students they should be turned in alone or by groups of two students.
