    • Bandwidth-Efficient BVH Layout for Incremental Hardware Traversal 

      Liktor, Gabor; Vaidyanathan, Karthik (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      The memory footprint of bounding volume hierarchies (BVHs) can be significantly reduced using incremental encoding, which enables the coarse quantization of bounding volumes. However, this compression alone does not ...
    • A Barcode Shape Descriptor for Curve Point Cloud Data

      High-resolution electron microscopy imaging allows neuroscientists to reconstruct not just entire cells but individual cell substructures (i.e., cell organelles) as well. Based on these data, scientists hope to get a better ...
    • Barycentric Coordinates on Surfaces 

      Raif M. Rustamov (2010)
      This paper introduces a method for defining and efficiently computing barycentric coordinates with respect to polygons on general surfaces. Our construction is geared towards injective polygons (polygons that can be enclosed ...
    • Barycentric Shaders: Art Directed Shading Using Control Images 

      Akleman, Ergun; Liu, S.; House, Donald (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      In this paper, we present Barycentric Shaders, a shading framework based on barycentric algebra, for the development of shader functions providing intuitive art-directed control. The framework guarantees that whatever style ...
    • Baseball Timeline: Summarizing Baseball Plays Into a Static Visualization 

      Ono, Jorge H. Piazentin; Dietrich, Carlos; Silva, Claudio T. (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2018)
      In sports, Play Diagrams are the standard way to represent and convey information. They are widely used by coaches, managers, journalists and fans in general. There are situations where diagrams may be hard to understand, ...
    • Bases para Reabilitação Assistida 

      Pereira, Rita; Guerreiro, Tiago; Nicolau, Hugo; Gonçalves, Daniel; Jorge, Joaquim (The Eurographics Association, 2021)
      O processo de fisioterapia consiste em devolver alguma qualidade de vida a deficientes motores, através do treino de um conjunto de movimentos. Cabe ao fisioterapeuta conseguir observar, interpretar e avaliar o estado ...
    • Basic Characteristics of Shear Tactile Stimulus Generated by Rotating Contactors 

      Yamaguchi, Tomoyuki; Ikei, Yasushi (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
      This paper describes the characteristics of haptic sensation that is evoked at the finger skin by a shearing stimulus presented using rotational contactors. First, the relation among the contact area, the contact force and ...
    • BAT - a Distributed Meta-tracking System 

      Kahlesz, Ferenc; Klein, Reinhard (The Eurographics Association, 2008)
      This paper describes the design of the 'BAT' (Bonn Articulated Tracker) visual tracking framework. This system allows the easy implementation of real-time, multi-camera motion tracking that can be distributed (also in ...
    • Battery Aachen - Using Landscape Reconstruction for On-site Exploration of a World War One Military Unit

    • Bayesian and Quasi Monte Carlo Spherical Integration for Global Illumination 

      Marques, Ricardo (Marques, 2013-10-22)
      The spherical sampling of the incident radiance function entails a high computational cost. Therefore the illumination integral must be evaluated using a limited set of samples. Such a restriction raises the question of ...
    • Bayesian and Quasi Monte Carlo Spherical Integration for Illumination Integrals 

      Marques, Ricardo; Bouville, Christian; Bouatouch, Kadi (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
      The spherical sampling of the incident radiance function entails a high computational cost. Therefore the illumination integral must be evaluated using a limited set of samples. Such a restriction raises the question of ...
    • Bayesian Collaborative Denoising for Monte Carlo Rendering 

      Boughida, Malik; Boubekeur, Tamy (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
