Chapter 5: Scalar Visualization
The exercises for Chapter 5 are added, for convenience, in a single PDF document.
Prerequisites: These exercises do require a good understanding of the main scalar visualization methods presented in Chapter 5. Although they do not require programming, they do require good algorithmic skills to be able to reason about specific challenges posed by the implementations of such methods. Next, these exercises require a good understanding of the interpolation and resampling issues discussed in Chapter 3. Also, a few exercises require limited calculus knowledge.
Aims: The provided exercises are intended to test the overall understanding of the student of the preconditions, postconditions, and algorithmic aspects of the main scalar visualization algorithms presented in Chapter 5. Rather than testing the memorization of such specific algorithms, the exercises test that the students understand the limit cases of, and design decisions taken in, such algorithms.
