Level Set Methods

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.

This is a very good introduction to the very exciting technique, level-set method. The method is basically for front-tracking or interface motion. But its application turned out to be so wide that it is now applied to problems which does not seem relevant to front-tracking, such as computaional grid generation. This book explaines the basics of this powerful tool very clearly, and it is in fact easy to read. Although it was written by a mathematician, it is not very mathematical like some texts on finite-element method written by mathematicians (which are often formidable to engineers). I recommend this book to anyone in engineering. You might find a new application of this technique.
