SC14-003: Introduction to Scientific Visualization

Dr. Yusheng Feng, University of Texas at San Antonio

This short course is developed based on the instructor’s one semester course titled “Advanced Scientific Visualization.” The design of this short course aims for scientists and engineers who are interested to learn the latest visualization techniques, extract information from their research data and gain knowledge resulting from either computer simulations or experiments. The short course covers, but not limited, the following topics:

• Introduction to information and scientific visualization
• Methodology of data representation
• Advanced techniques to visualize scalars, vectors, and tensors
• Imaging and volume visualization
• Discussion of visualization software
• Applications of virtual reality in scientific research
