The wealthier few get invited to glitzier parties, live in swankier homes, drive faster cars, and date hotter people. But why should life’s perks accrue to only the fantastically rich? In a world where social standing is determined by perception, Live Like a Millionaire (Without Having to Be One) will show you what it takes to mingle with millionaires, party with plutocrats, and attain the lavish lifestyle on a stipend. Vicky Oliver will teach you how to: Dress to impress, even if the emperor (you) has no clothes. Skimp on the items no one will notice anyway. Achieve millionaire hair for pennies. Develop frugalista fashion flair. Amass a $64 million vocabulary. Use your conversational charm and social media moxie to schmooze your way into the Inner Circle. Attain the trappings of luxury—no matter your net worth!
Computational Science is the scienti?c discipline that aims at the development and understanding of new computational methods and techniques to model and simulate complex systems. The area of application includes natural systems – such as biology, envir- mental and geo-sciences, physics, and chemistry – and synthetic systems such as electronics and ?nancial and economic systems. The discipline is a bridge b- ween ‘classical’ computer science – logic, complexity, architecture, algorithms – mathematics, and the use of computers in the aforementioned areas. The relevance for society stems from the numerous challenges that exist in the various science and engineering disciplines, which can be tackled by advances made in this ?eld. For instance new models and methods to study environmental issues like the quality of air, water, and soil, and weather and climate predictions through simulations, as well as the simulation-supported development of cars, airplanes, and medical and transport systems etc. Paraphrasing R. Kenway (R.D. Kenway, Contemporary Physics. 1994): ‘There is an important message to scientists, politicians, and industrialists: in the future science, the best industrial design and manufacture, the greatest medical progress, and the most accurate environmental monitoring and forecasting will be done by countries that most rapidly exploit the full potential ofcomputational science’. Nowadays we have access to high-end computer architectures and a large range of computing environments, mainly as a consequence of the enormous s- mulus from the various international programs on advanced computing, e.g.
Virtual Humans are becoming more and more popular and used in many applications such as the entertainment industry (in both film and games) and medical applications. This comprehensive book covers all areas of this growing industry including face and body motion, body modelling, hair simulation, expressive speech simulation and facial communication, interaction with 3D objects, rendering skin and clothes and the standards for Virtual Humans. Written by a team of current and former researchers at MIRALab, University of Geneva or VRlab, EPFL, this book is the definitive guide to the area. Explains the concept of avatars and autonomous virtual actors and the main techniques to create and animate them (body and face). Presents the concepts of behavioural animation, crowd simulation, intercommunication between virtual humans, and interaction between real humans and autonomous virtual humans Addresses the advanced topics of hair representation and cloth animation with applications in fashion design Discusses the standards for Virtual Humans, such as MPEG-4 Face Animation and MPEG-4 Body Animation.
Proceedings of the October 2001 conference that covered active research areas of computer graphics. The 41 contributions and three invited talks address adaptive meshing, morphing, surface features and reconstruction, geometric processing, subdivision surfaces, smooth surface synthesis, volume visualization, volumetric modeling, visibility and flow models, illumination, and simulation based and efficient rendering. Contains many color and bandw illustrations. Lacks a subject index. c. Book News Inc.
The four-volume set LNCS 3036, LNCS 3037, LNCS 3038 and LNCS 3039 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Computational Science, ICCS 2004, held in Kraków, Poland in June 2004. The four volumes present more than 550 reviewed contributed and invited papers of the main conference and its 30 workshops. The papers span the whole range of computational science, from foundational and methodological issues in computer science and algorithmic mathematics to advanced applications in virtually all sciences making use of computational techniques. The proceedings is a unique record of recent progress in the field.
This book covers both theoretical and practical aspects of virtual worlds and multimedia. It presents advanced research and survey on key topics such as image compression, HDTV, synthetic actors, synthetic TV, 3D interaction, virtual reality, electronic books, and architectural space.
This volume contains the research papers presented at the Eleventh Eurographics Workshop on Computer Animation and Simulation which took place in Interlaken, Switzerland, August 21-22, 2000. The workshop is an international forum for research in human animation, physically-based modeling, motion control, animation systems, and other key aspects of animation and simulation. The call for papers required submission of the full papers for review, and each paper was reviewed by at least 3 members of the international program committee and additional reviewers. Based on the reviews, 14 papers were accepted and the authors were invited to submit a final version for the workshop. We wish to especially thank all reviewers for their time and effort in working within the rigid constraints of the tight schedule, thereby making it possible to publish this volume in time for the workshop. We also thank the authors for their contributions to the workshop, without whom this unique forum for animation and simulation work would not exist. We are grateful to the Eurographics Association and especially to Werner Purgathofer from the Technical University of Vienna, for his support in publishing the workshop as a volume of the Springer-Verlag Eurographics Series. We also thank the Eurographics '2000 organisers, especially David Duce, and Heinrich Miiller from the EG board. We are also very grateful to lerrin Celebi for the organization of the review process and and Josiane Bottarelli for the registration process.
