Scientific Visualization at the interfaces

ICS-Summer School, Roscoff, July 28 - August 8, 2014

Course instructors:

1. Syllabus

This class is an introduction to mathematical and computational aspects of scientific visualization. It is presented to the point of view that the students are (going to be) applied computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists, biologists, or engineers.

Scientific visualization is at the crossroad of many disciplines and, like many topics at the interfaces between disciplines, its access may seem a bit harsh for (under)graduate students in sciences or engineering. Our goal is to cover the main theoretical and practical aspects of this emerging area. Actually, we have sought to achieve a right balance between theoretical concepts, mathematical analysis, description of algorithms and engineering applications. Numerical experiments using Paraview, VTK, OpenGL, as well as programming sessions in C++ will help students to understand these concepts and see advanced methods in action.
