The IVD conducts research in the fields of computer graphics, visualization, and applied geometry.
|These tasks require among others models for describing virtual scenes, representations for creating and manipulating scenes, and methods for image synthesis (rendering). Visualization further requires a preparation of data and mapping it to well-interpretable graphical and visual primitives. Important aspects in all these fields are efficiency, interactivity, and consumption of resources.
The Applied Geometry research emphasis (Prof. Dr H. Prautzsch) is in the field of geometric problems in practical application. It focuses on the modelling and reconstruction of spatial objects, their calculation and production as well as computer-internal and graphic representation. Applications can be found in the design of auto bodies, buildings and clothes as well as in medicine, geography, robotics, computer graphics and image processing.
