Ladislav explores new approaches to real-time computer graphics and animation. In his most recent work, he studied how to take a standard physics-based deformation model and transform it into a geometric "deformer," i.e., a simple closed-form algorithm that can produce virtually the same result, several orders of magnitude faster than the original formulation. In his previous work, he applied techniques from abstract and linear algebra, spectral methods and finite elements to improve upon technology used in the game and film industries.
