Contour trees and small seed sets for isosurface traversal
For 2D or 3D meshes that represent the domain of continuous function to the reals, the contours|or isosurfaces|of a speci ed value are an important way to visualize the function. To nd such contours,Expand

In this paper we apply Galois methods to certain fundamentalgeometric optimization problems whose exact computational complexity has been an open problem for a long time. In particular we show thatExpand

Arbitrary Topology Shape Reconstruction from Planar Cross Sections
In computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound imaging, reconstruction of the 3D object from the 2D scalar-valued slices obtained by the imaging system is difficult because of theExpand

Fast isocontouring for improved interactivity
We present an isocontouring algorithm which is near-optimal for real-time interaction and modification of isovalues in large datasets. A preprocessing step selects a subset S of the cells which areExpand

Tracing surface intersections
Abstract We consider the problem of tracing the intersection of surfaces given either implicitly or parametrically. We give a numerical tracing procedure in which a third-order Taylor approximant isExpand

TexMol: interactive visual exploration of large flexible multi-component molecular complexes
While molecular visualization software has advanced over the years, today, most tools still operate on individual molecular structures with limited facility to manipulate large multicomponentExpand

Automatic reconstruction of surfaces and scalar fields from 3D scans
We present an efficient and uniform approach for the automatic reconstruction of surfaces of CAD (computer aided design) models and scalar fields defined on them, from an unorganized collection ofExpand

High-resolution cryo-electron microscopy structure of the Trypanosoma brucei ribosome
Ribosomes, the protein factories of living cells, translate genetic information carried by messenger RNAs into proteins, and are thus involved in virtually all aspects of cellular development andExpand
