Mathematics for Expressive Image Synthesis

Computer graphics (CG) is increasingly transforming every aspect of image creation and processing.
This project pursues a new mathematical framework to greatly enhance the expressive ability of digital image creation.
It seeks a methodology for making animations directable in a quicker and more intuitive way than ever before, even while focusing on challenging image categories such as humans and fluids.
