Grid-Independent Detection of Closed Stream Lines in 2D Vector Fields
2004 (English)In: Proc. Vision, Modeling and Visualization, 2004, 421-428 p.Conference paper (Refereed)Text
We present a new approach to detecting isolated closed stream lines in 2D vector fields. This approach is based on the idea of transforming the 2D vector field into an appropriate 3D vector field such that detecting closed stream lines in 2D is equivalent to intersecting certain stream surfaces in 3D. Contrary to pre-existing methods, our approach does not rely on any underlying grid structure of the vector field. We demonstrate the applicability and stability by applying it to a test data set.
