Welcome to the Visual Computing Group at Heidelberg University

The Visual Computing Group was founded in 2015 and is headed by Prof. Filip Sadlo. Our research interests include scientific visualization, volumetric rendering, information visualization, and computational photography, with a focus on proximity to physics and simulation. This page is under construction. Please see the News Page for status and progress.

Space-Time Visualization of Dynamics in Lagrangian Coherent Structures of Time-Dependent 2D Vector Fields

In Proceedings of International Conference on Information Visualization Theory and Applications (IVAPP), pp. 573–583, 2012.


Lagrangian coherent structures (LCS), apparent as ridges in the finite-time Lyapunov exponent (FTLE) field, represent a time-dependent alternative to the concept of separatrices in vector field topology. Traditionally, LCS are analyzed and visualized in terms of their g... [More ...]
