Space-Time Bifurcation Lines for Extraction of 2D Lagrangian Coherent Structures

Computer Graphics Forum, vol. 35, no. 3, pp. 91–100, 2016.


We present a novel and efficient technique to extract Lagrangian coherent structures in two-dimensional time-dependent vector fields. We show that this can be achieved by employing bifurcation line extraction in the space-time representation of the vector field, and gen... [More ...]
