In this new edition of the successful book Level Set Methods, Professor Sethian incorporates the most recent advances in Fast Marching Methods, many of which appear here for the first time. Continuing the expository style of the first edition, this introductory volume presents cutting edge algorithms in these groundbreaking techniques and provides the reader with a wealth of application areas for further study. Fresh applications to computer-aided design and optimal control are explored and studies of computer vision, fluid mechanics, geometry, and semiconductor manufacture have been revised and updated. The text includes over thirty new chapters. It will be an invaluable reference for researchers and students.
