Asynchronous, Adaptive Rigid Body Simulation
A new algorithm for rigid body simulation that is both asynchronous (different objects are updated at different times) and adaptive (each object selects its optimal update frequency).

Real-Time and Physically Realistic Simulation of Global Deformation
Application of graded nonlinear FEM to simulate global deformation of 3D flexible objects in real time and a simple, efficient collision-time-integration scheme.

Methods for Preventing Cloth Self-Intersection
Cloth-cloth interactions are highly complex. Colliding patches of cloth push on and slide against each other. This alternative approach to modeling cloth prevents self-intersections and reacts in a realistic manner as the cloth collides with itself. It does not sacrifice the visual integrity of the simulation and yields realistic self-collisions in cloth.

Multifluid Finite-Volume Navier-Stokes Solutions for Realistic Fluid Animation
A multifluid, incompressible, variable-density, finite volume solution of the Navier-Stokes equations for generation of realistic fluid animation is presented. A high-resolution tracking algorithm is used to capture the complex topology of interfaces, and results are rendered using blobs.
