We present the first quality physics-based smoke animation method which runs in time approximately linear in the size of the rendered two-dimensional visual detail. Our fundamental representation is a closed triangle mesh surface dividing space between clear air and a uniformly smoky region, on which we compute vortex sheet dynamics to accurately solve… (More)

We tackle deep water simulation in a scalable way, solving 3D irrotational flow using only variables stored in a mesh of the surface of the water, in time proportional to the rendered mesh. The heart of our method is a novel boundary integral equation formulation that is amenable to explicit mesh tracking with unstructured triangle meshes. Our method… (More)

We introduce a novel representation for visibility in three dimensions and describe an efficient algorithm to construct it. The data structure is a spherical map that consists of a doubly–connected edge list embedded on the surface of a sphere. Each face of the spherical map is labeled with the polygon visible in the corresponding cone. We demonstrate that… (More)

Explicit surface tracking encompasses the discretization of moving surfaces in 3D with triangle meshes. This thesis presents key contributions towards making explicit surface tracking tractable. I first deal with the topology change problem (the merging and splitting of mesh surfaces), introducing a framework for guaranteeing intersection-free surfaces… (More)
