Black holes interactive visualization

Dean's award for outstanding bachelor thesis

This bachelor thesis presents a complete process of creating a real-time visualization of some of the most unexplored objects in the universe - black holes. It describes the basics of black holes nature as well as Kerr spacetime and ray tracing in this spacetime. As the main source of interactivity was used Leap Motion controller. For better performance and more favorable interactivity NVIDIA CUDA technology was used.
