Publications and Theses

Here are some of the publications and theses I have written over the years of research, and the projects I have worked on. The majority focuses on sound and acoustics, but some older stuff concentrates more on graphics, volume rendering and NPR. There is also my Diplom/Master's Thesis, as well as my internship report. If you are having difficulties downloading some of these, please contact me. Please contact me also if you have any questions or comments.
