Haptic Rendering of Interaction Between Textured Models
A new algorithm to display haptic texture information resulting from the interaction between two textured objects. The algorithm computes contact forces using low-resolution geometric representations along with texture images.

Multi-Resolution Sound Rendering
An approximation technique based on hierarchical stochastic sampling that allows sound rendering in highly complex acoustic environments (scenes containing a large number of sound sources).
