Electronic version of the paper containing
the hyperlinks to the movies listed below.
- interact.mpg (Figures 6(a)-(c)):
Animation of back hair with hair-hair interactions.
The hair is forced to split into two,
and then merges again because of gravity.
Hair-hair interactions prevent the hairs from penetrating each other.
- no_interact.mpg (Figure 6(d)):
Animation of back hair without hair-hair interactions.
The split hairs move independently and penetrate each other.
- shake.mpg (Figure 7):
Animation of hair when the head is shaken.
The head turns around and the hair follows this motion with delay
because of inertia.
Dynamic clustering effects are visible.
- wind.mpg (Figure 8):
Animation of hair blowing in wind.
The wind is also represented by particles, and
interactions between the hair and the air are also simulated.
