What is the blog?

This blog is a re-interpretation of the tessendorf.org website I had for several years. At the moment I am putting up the papers and reports page. Eventually I will put up the other pages on frumple and old Arete Image Software materials. You can also find this information at my university page

Deforming Geometric Volumes: Kinematics, Dynamics, Constraints, and Collisions
Jerry Tessendorf
February, 2002
These notes are intended as an outline of some geometric techniques that may be applicable to modeling and dynamics problems that include volumetric objects. Of particular interest are objects consisting of an enclosed volume, with the volume undergoing deformations while subjected to external forces, collisions, and boundary constraints
that combine to reshape the volume dynamically.
