Laboratory for Interactive Virtual Environments



Our lab pursues research in physics-based simulation of natural phenomena within a virtual environment, exploring applications in computer graphics, computational biomechanics, and robotics. We design numerical discretizations for capturing new effects, and also emphasize the design of efficient data structures and numerical solvers to allow highly detailed simulations to benefit from the hardware available on modern compute platforms, with the ultimate goal of achieving real-time (or interactive) simulation rates.

Software

Our lab maintains an open-source codebase called Nova, with the aim of creating a library that is light-weight and flexible, while at the same time customizable for high-performance implementations. Its design allows for custom visualization plugins that are specific to each project, and example projects that utilize the library are kept under a separate repository called Nova_Examples.
