|Title:||Tensor Product B-spline Mesh Generation for Accurate Surface Visualizations in the NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions|
|Published:||February 12, 2010|
|Abstract:||We discuss the use of tensor product B-spline meshes to design accurate three dimensional graphs of high level mathematical functions for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Digital Library of Mathematical Functions. The graph data is placed inside a web based format such as VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) or X3D (Extensible 3D) to create an interactive visualization environment where users can carefully examine complicated function attributes such as zeros, branch cuts, poles and other singularities. We describe the grid generation technique and its effectiveness for creating clear and informative visualizations.|
