Level Set Methods and Fast Marching Methods: Evolving Interfaces in Computational Geometry, Fluid Mechanics, Computer Vision, and Materials Science
This book is an introduction to level set methods, which are powerful numerical techniques for analyzing and computing interface motion in a host of settings. The numerical techniques can be used to track three-dimensional complex fronts that can develop sharp corners and change topology as they evolve. A large collection of applications are provided in the text, including examples from physics, chemistry, fluid mechanics, combustion, image processing, material science, fabrication of microelectronic components, computer vision and control theory.This book will be a useful resource for mathematicians, applied scientists, practicing engineers, computer graphic artists, and anyone interested in the evolution of boundaries and interfaces.
