Computer Graphics is sometimes defined as “mathematics made visible.” What can Computer Graphics do for science? In this talk, Dr. Elisabeta Marai will discuss an array of projects that she and her student group have developed at the Electronic Visualization Lab at the University of Illinois. These projects build on solid mathematical foundations to facilitate the analysis of complex scientific phenomena. The resulting representations and tools have application in domains as diverse as neuroimaging, biology, astronomy and orthopaedics.
While the talk is aimed at undergraduates of all levels, everyone (including non-students) is welcome.
