New Geometric Data Structures for Collision Detection and Haptics (Springer Series on Touch and Haptic Systems)

Buy

Starting with novel algorithms for optimally updating bounding volume hierarchies of objects undergoing arbitrary deformations, the author presents a new data structure that allows, for the first time, the computation of the penetration volume. The penetration volume is related to the water displacement of the overlapping region, and thus corresponds to a physically motivated and continuous force. The practicability of the approaches used is shown by realizing new applications in the field of robotics and haptics, including a user study that evaluates the influence of the degrees of freedom in complex haptic interactions. New Geometric Data Structures for Collision Detection and Haptics closes by proposing an open source benchmarking suite that evaluates both the performance and the quality of the collision response in order to guarantee a fair comparison of different collision detection algorithms.

Required in the fields of computer graphics, physically-based simulations, computer animations, robotics and haptics, collision detection is a fundamental problem that arises every time we interact with virtual objects. Some of the open challenges associated with collision detection include the handling of deformable objects, the stable computation of physically-plausible contact information, and the extremely high frequencies that are required for haptic rendering. New Geometric Data Structures for Collision Detection and Haptics presents new solutions to all of these challenges, and will prove to be a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners of collision detection in the haptics, robotics and computer graphics and animation domains.

Constant Mean Curvature Surfaces with Boundary (Springer Monographs in Mathematics)
Constant Mean Curvature Surfaces with Boundary (Springer Monographs in Mathematics)

The study of surfaces with constant mean curvature (CMC) is one of the main topics in classical differential geometry. Moreover, CMC surfaces are important mathematical models for the physics of interfaces in the absence of gravity, where they separate two different media or for capillary phenomena. Further, as most techniques used in the...

Interpreting anaphors in natural language texts (Ellis Horwood series in artificial intelligence)
Interpreting anaphors in natural language texts (Ellis Horwood series in artificial intelligence)
Perhaps the major obstacle to the development of computer programs capable of the sophisticated processing of natural language is the problem of representing and using the large and varied quantities of world or domain knowledge that are, in general, required. This book describes an attempt to circumvent this obstacle for one...
