Interactive Wood Combustion for Botanical Tree Models

Summary: We present a novel method for the combustion of botanical tree models. Tree models are represented as particles that store biological and physical attributes that drive the kinetic behavior of a plant and the exothermic reaction of the combustion, which is efficiently processed in real-time.

How to Train Your Dragon: Example-Guided Control of Flapping Flight

Summary: We present a control method for flying creatures, which are aerodynamically simulated, interactively controllable, and equipped with a variety of motor skills such as soaring, gliding, hovering, and diving. Each motor skill is represented as Deep Neural Networks (DNN) and learned using Deep Q-Learning (DQL).

A Hyperbolic Geometric Flow for Evolving Films and Foams

Summary: A reformation of soap film dynamics as a hyperbolic geometric flow. Our model provides a fast simulation that elegantly leads films to the steady states as Plateau’s laws describe.
