Adaptive Hierarchical Triangulation
My research has focused mainly on the creation of efficient hierarchical surface models. I have applied this primarily to terrain models for flight and battle simulators.
Currently I only have my doctoral dissertation on-line. The chapters are stored in PDF, so you'll need Acrobat to read it. Please note that the images make some of the chapters quite large.
