Algorithms for Implicit Deformable Models

  title={Algorithms for Implicit Deformable Models},
  author={Ross T. Whitaker},
This paper presents a framework for implicit deformable models and a pair of new algorithms for solving the nonlinear partial di erential equations that result from this framework. Implicit models o er a useful alternative to parametric models, particularly when dealing with the deformation of higher-dimensional objects. The basic expressions for the evolution of implicit models are relatively straightforward; they follow as a direct consequence of the chain rule for di erentiation. More… CONTINUE READING
