Tracking Lines in Higher Order Tensor Fields

Mario Hlawitschka & Gerik Scheuermann
While tensors occur in many areas of science and engineering, little has been done to visualize tensors with order higher than two. Tensors of higher orders can be used for example to describe complex diffusion patterns in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Recently, we presented a method for tracking lines in higher order tensor fields that is a generalization of methods known from first order tensor fields (vector fields) and symmetric second order tensor fields. Here,...
