Title: Tetrahedral Volume Visualization
Reference: Leila de Floriani

Abstract. Volume Visualization, one of the main issue in Scientific Visualization, concerns with the study of representation and visualization techniques data distributed on a three dimensional domain. After a short presentation of the most common isusses in volume visualization we discuss the adoption of tetrahedral complexes as the basic structure for Volume Visualization. The adoption of this structure permits many advantages ranging from its broad generality (many kind of data can be supported) to the high efficiency in the visualization process. Moreover this approach falls within the broader proposal of using simplicial complexes as the possible unifying data structure for Scientific Visualization.
