Selected Topics from Computer Graphics and Visualization

Students will get to know the current methods and technologies in the field of three-dimensional computer graphics. Emphasis will be given to rendering different types of data: volumetric data, point clouds, mesh geometry and logically defined geometry in the fields of medicine, biology, geodesy and high energy physics. Because the rendered data can be very large, emphasis will also be given to application of appropriate algorithms and data structures for fast and real-time rendering, implementation of techniques on graphic processors and remote rendering. In addition to the techniques, the students will also get acquainted with the different ways of visualizing such data, suitable for individual domains.
