About this book


Physics-Based Deformable Models presents a systematic physics-based framework for modeling rigid, articulated, and deformable objects, their interactions with the physical world, and the estimate of their shape and motion from visual data. This book presents a large variety of methods and associated experiments in computer vision, graphics and medical imaging that help the reader better to understand the presented material. In addition, special emphasis has been given to the development of techniques with interactive or close to real-time performance.
Physics-Based Deformable Models is suitable as a secondary text for graduate level courses in Computer Graphics, Computational Physics, Computer Vision, Medical Imaging, and Biomedical Engineering. In addition, this book is appropriate as a reference for researchers and practitioners in the above-mentioned fields.
