Visualization & Imaging
Visualization and imaging are two sides of the same coin, both lying on the border between mathematics and computer science. Visualization is occupied with making structures, objects, data and processes visible. Imaging works in the other direction, seeking to reconstruct information on the structures, objects and processes behind existing pictures or films.
Our research groups at the TUM are particularly active in the following areas of visualization and imaging:
- theoretical fundaments (what are suitable mathematical methods for the visualization scenarios posed),
- the creation of software systems for interactive visualization (e.g. Cinderella/CindyJS),
- the connections between discrete and continual processes (in close cooperation with the SFB/Transregio Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics),
- the reconstruction of incomplete images (Image inpainting and reconstruction).
