collaboration mainly between the Simulation and The CGU is part of the Department of Simulation Modeling Group and the Computer Graphics and and Graphics which has four other research groups: Interactive Systems Laboratory. In 1996, the CGU Simulation and Modeling, Computational Geometry, was instrumental in establishing undergraduate (B.Sc.) and graduate degree programs (M.Sc.,Ph.D.) graduate degree programs in Computational systems that allow free navigation by the user, Visualistics, in which about 600 students are emphasis techniques must also consider visibility issues. In particular, camera planning can help both in establishing views that suit a certain Current Research
communicative goal as well as providing a better 3D Non-photorealistic rendering: NPR as an alternative experience through guided camera motion. Temporal to photorealistic image generation is treated in all influences on visualization: Research concentrates on facets of the area. Algorithms have been devised, for the visual representation of temporal data example, to render line drawings and to incorporate characteristics. This work is supported by extending various non-photorealistic and photorealistic styles in the set of presentation variables by object motion as one image to enhance the communicative power of images. Special projects include the analysis of view-dependent particle distributions for placing stipples on the surface of polygonal meshes as well as real-time visibility preprocessing to improve interaction with large models. Computer games: As application of real-time NPR techniques, current research focuses on the integration of various different rendering styles in a game engine, evolving game engines into a versatile tool for real-time visualization. Techniques for action summaries, the automatic generation of summaries of interactive scenes are developed. For that, characteristics of players and exciting events that occur are detected so that the presentation style of the game can be Important Recent Project Participations

Alzheimer's disease overview nytimes.doc nov 2009

Alzheimer's Disease Overview Alzheimer's disease (AD), is one form of dementia that gradually gets worse over time. It affects memory, thinking, and behavior. Memory impairment, as well as problems with language, decision-making ability, judgment, and personality, are necessary features for the diagnosis. Reference from A.D.A.M. ALTERNATIVE NAMES Senile dementia - Alzheimer's type (SDAT)
