On the Computation of Integral Curves in Adaptive Mesh Refinement Vector Fields

Eduard Deines, Gunther H. Weber, Christoph Garth, Brian Van Straalen & Sergey Borovikov
Integral curves, such as streamlines, streaklines, pathlines, and timelines, are an essential tool in the analysis of vector field structures, offering straightforward and intuitive interpretation of visualization results. While such curves have a long-standing tradition in vector field visualization, their application to Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) simulation results poses unique problems. AMR is a highly effective discretization method for a variety of physical simulation problems and has recently been applied to the study of vector...
