Computational Topology Group

University of Kaiserslautern

Welcome

to the webpages of the Computational Topology group. Our research is focused on foundations and practical applications of topological and other approaches to Scientific Visualization. Here, our goal is to generate intuitive and insightful visualizations from abstract data from a variety of sources, such as for example numerical simulation or physical experiment. Our group specializes in vector and tensor field visualization using integration-based methods; however, we are interested in general methods and applications of visualization, and are also investigating the connection between visualization and High-Performance Computing to identify visual analysis methods that are suitable for very large and complex data sets. Our current teaching efforts are centered on Computational Topology, Computational Geometry, and Scientific Visualization.
