Forum Math-for-Industry 2010, MI Lecture Note Vol.27, 2010.10

Visual simulation of natural phenomena has become one of the most important research topics in computer graphics. Such phenomena include water, fire, smoke, clouds, and so on. Realistic simulation of these phenomena can be achieved by solving a set of partial differential equations, called Navier-Stokes equations. In this talk, I will briefly review the Navier-Stokes equations and explain how the equations can be applied to the simulation of various natural phenomena. I will also explain some methods to control the simulation in order to produce desired visual effects.
