Reaction: Imaging Vector Fields Using Line Integral Convolution

This was a very difficult article for me to understand. There seemed to be a lot of technical information that I was not familiar with. I think the authors were proposing a new algorithm for envisioning points in a vector field. This new algorithm improved upon an existing algorithm, DDA.

It was helpful to have some pictures in the article and from what I could see, it looked like things were, in fact, rendered clearer with the LIC algorithm then with the DDA algorithm. However, I wasn't really sure exactly what I was looking at because I'm so unfamiliar with the subject. I think my "questions" for this paper would be - all of them. I have all the questions for this article and am looking forward to having it explained because I was not able to follow it well.
