The level set method for multiphase flow, crystal growth, shape reconstruction, and whatever else you might need

Prof. Stan Osher

Department of Mathematics, University of California- Los Angeles


The level set method was devised in 1987 by S. Osher and J. A. Sethian as a versatile and useful tool for analyzing and representing the motion of fronts. It has proven to be phenomenally successful a both a theoretical and computational device. In this talk we review its properties, discuss the advances in level set technology since the original paper and highlight some of the application areas.
