We develop physically-based models of deformable curves, surfaces, and solids for use in computer graphics. Our deformable models are governed by the mechanical laws of continuous bodies whose shapes can change over time. These laws, expressed in the form of dynamic differential equations, unify the description of shape and motion. By solving the equations numerically we are able to create realistic animations involving the interaction of deformable models with various applied forces, ambientdoi:10.1007/bf01908877 fatcat:2zuqjlmb6jfpnijg3njqq7sudi
