The overall goals for the Center for Human Modeling and Simulation are the investigation of computer graphics modeling, animation, and rendering techniques. Major focii are in behavior-based animation of human movement, modeling through physics-based techniques, applications of control theory techniques to dynamic models, illumination models for image synthesis, and understanding the relationship between human movement, natural language, and communication.
