|Fast Marching Methods and Level Set Methods are numerical techniques that can follow the evolution of interfaces. These interfaces can develop sharp corners, break apart, and merge together. The techniques have a wide range of applications, including problems in fluid mechanics, combustion, manufacturing of computer chips, computer animation, image processing, structure of snowflakes, and the shape of soap bubbles. Movies, an explanation, a page devoted to TCAD simulations in the manufacture of semi-conductors; and Java applets illustrating Curves Collapsing under Curvature; Curves Collapsing under General Speeds; and Image De-noising.|
