      Breaking the walls: Scene partitioning and portal creation 

      Lerner, A.; Chrysanthou, Yiorgos L.; Cohen-Or, D. (IEEE Computer Society, 2003)
      In this paper, we revisit the cells-and-portals visibility methods, originally developed for the special case of architectural interiors. We define an effectiveness measure for a cells-and-portals partitioning, and introduce ...

      Computing Dynamic Changes to BSP Trees 

      Chrysanthou, Yiorgos L.; Slater, M. (1992)
      This paper investigates a new method for dynamically changing Binary Space Partition (BSP) trees. A BSP tree representation of a 3D polygonal scene provides an ideal data structure for rapidly performing the hidden surface ...

      Context-dependent crowd evaluation 

      Lerner, A.; Chrysanthou, Yiorgos L.; Shamir, A.; Cohen-Or, D. (2010)
      Many times, even if a crowd simulation looks good in general, there could be some specific individual behaviors which do not seem correct. Spotting such problems manually can become tedious, but ignoring them may harm the ...

      Crest line extraction from point clouds 

      Stylianou, Georgios; Chrysanthou, Yiorgos L. (2005)
      We present a simple, automatic method for extracting feature curves, called crest lines, from point clouds. Crest lines are surface shape features having a mathematical background. Given an unstructured point cloud as ...

      Crowd self-organization, streaming and short path smoothing 

      Soteris, Stylianou; Chrysanthou, Yiorgos L. (2006)
      Pedestrians implicitly cooperate by forming lanes inside dense crowd in order to facilitate flow and prevent complete passage blocking. Our aim is to re-enforce this self-organization phenomenon in dense crowd for the ...

      Crowds by example 

      Lerner, A.; Chrysanthou, Yiorgos L.; Lischinski, D. (2007)
      We present an example-based crowd simulation technique. Most crowd simulation techniques assume that the behavior exhibited by each person in the crowd can be defined by a restricted set of rules. This assumption limits ...

      Data driven evaluation of crowds 

      Lerner, A.; Chrysanthou, Yiorgos L.; Shamir, A.; Cohen-Or, D. (2009)
      There are various techniques for simulating crowds, however, in most cases the quality of the simulation is measured by examining its "look-and- feel". Even if the aggregate movement of the crowd looks natural from afar, ...
