Revision as of 03:20, 3 September 2008

Coming up next Friday (09/05)

Carson Brownlee (15 min)

Worked at LANL for the summer with Patrick McCormick on an analytic visualization tool called SCOUT writing volume renderers and animation systems.

He did do some work on visualizing cosmological datasets (dark halos) and worked on simulating Sclieren visualization which is an old optical technique used to look at invisible differences in inhomogeneous data (such as shockwaves or heat dissipation).

08/29: Open Discussion and Semester Planning

Seeing in Four Dimenstions:

The article http://www.sciencenews.org/view/generic/id/35740/title/Seeing_in_four_dimensions

The site http://www.dimensions-math.org/

Our plan to this Friday's session is to have an open
discussion of any interesting ideas that you want to
bring in and to plan/schedule presentations for the
following Fridays.

A common practice for VisLunch is to use some of its
sessions as a mean to let people know about the work
of the new people around: new faculties, new post docs,
new PhD. students . As there are lots of new faces
around, we hope to schedule some of these presentations
in this session.

This semester Lauro Lins will be responsible for
organizing the VisLunch sessions. Here is his contact
