Abstract

We present a thread of streamlets as a new technique to visualize dynamical systems in three-space. A trade-off is made between solely visualizing a mathematical abstraction through lower-dimensional manifolds, i.e., characteristic structures such as fixed point, separatrices, etc., and directly encoding the flow through stream lines or stream surfaces. Bundlers of streamlets are selectively placed near characteristic trajectories. An over-population of phase space with occlusion problems as a consequence is omitted. On the other hand, information loss is minimized since characteristic structures of the flow are still illustrated in the visualization.
