The book Traité de la Réalité Virtuelle, volume 5 about Virtual Reality to which I participated (chapter 8 on the deformable layers of virtual humans) can be ordered here.

Research Interests

My primary research interest focuses on animation of deformable models. The main application is character animation in real-time. To achieve real-time, perceptually based algorithms are developed. In addition, I also am interested in Global Illumination algorithms, modeling and Computational Aesthetics.

My research interests and achievements are detailed here: http://zabador.free.fr/Research/.
