Visual Tools for Understanding Multi-dimensional Parameter Spaces


Dr. Torsten Möller, School of Computing Science, Simon Fraser University


September 19, 2011, 3:30 pm, CL 410





Simulations are an integral part of computational science.  Simulations are characterized by a particular set of inputs and a multitudes of outputs. Understanding the dependency of the outputs from the inputs is key for understanding the underlying phenomena that are being modeled. In this talk I will try to give a characterization of such general input/output systems and present several tools we have built for different applications, ranging from fisheries science to medical imaging to fluid simulation. I will try to make the case that visual support greatly facilitates the understanding of these complex systems.
