Deformation Embedded for Point-Based Elastoplastic Simulation

By computing the least-squares best fit of a material's rest state into three dimensions, this method can animate point-based materials that simultaneously undergo extreme elastic and plastic deformation.

Exponential Integrators for Stiff Elastodynamic Problems

In this paper, exponential integrators are used to achieve a tremendous increase in long-term stability compared to conventional methods. The advantageous behavior for stiff problems is demonstrated on a broad spectrum of complex models like fibers, textiles, solids, and collision scenarios.

Projective Dynamics: Fusing Constraint Projections for Fast Simulation

This new method for implicit time integration of physical system builds a bridge between finite element methods and position-based dynamics, leading to a simple, efficient, robust, yet accurate solver that supports many different types of constraints.
