The goal of this work is to simplify volumetric datasets while preserving the sharp boundary features and the topology of the 3D scalar field. The simplification is performed on the volumetric datasets defined as a tetrahedral mesh. The sharp boundary features are detected and preserved in the simplification to conserve the salient details of the tetrahedral mesh. The topology of the 3D scalar field is preserved by maintaining critical points extracted from the original dataset. No critical… CONTINUE READING
