Abstract : Research in computer graphics aims at producing efficient algorithms for generating and manipulating data, simulating physical phenomena, and displaying information in real-time in order to generate synthetic images. The constant increase in computational power is challenged by the explosion of the demand in terms of level of realism, complexity of simulations and amount of data to handle in interactive applications. In this context, I present contributions in different sub-domains of research in computer graphics: (1) geometry analysis and processing including an original texture mapping algorithm and a method for automatic instancing of scenes; (2) image processing, for which I propose an extension of the Hilbert-Huang empirical mode decomposition in 2D and an algorithm for binary content selection from inaccurate user input; (3) simulation of light transport applied to plant growth simulation, and Fourier analysis of the light transport operator for various applications including real-time rendering. Eventually I present potential research tracks that I consider promising for the future.
