# Line 1  Line 1 
1  ========================  NOTE: GLK's approximate ranking of 5 most important tagged with
2  SHORT TERM =============  (for curvature-based VR)  [GLK:1], [GLK:2], ...
3  ========================  
4    ==============================
5  For RGB color output of 2D transfer function (indexed by  other SHORT TERM =============  (including needed for LIC)
6  kappa1,kappa2), or for a 1D transfer function, will need  ==============================
7  something akin to convolution on vector images  
8    Add a clamp function, which takes three arguments; either three scalars:
9      clamp(x, minval, maxval)  = max(minval, min(maxval, x))
10    or three vectors of the same size:
11      clamp([x,y], minvec, maxvec)  = [max(minvec[0], min(maxvec[0], x)),
12                                       max(minvec[1], min(maxvec[1], y))]
13    This would be useful in many current Diderot programs.
14    One question: clamp(x, minval, maxval) is the argument order
15    used in OpenCL and other places, but clamp(minval, maxval, x)
16    would be more consistent with lerp(minout, maxout, x).
17    
18    Level of differentiability in field type should be statement about how
19    much differentiation the program *needs*, rather than what the kernel
20    *provides*.  The needed differentiability can be less than or equal to
21    the provided differentiability.
22    
23    [GLK:1] Add sequence types (needed for evals & evecs)
24        syntax
25            types: ty '{' INT '}'
26            value construction: '{' e1 ',' … ',' en '}'

57    
58    [GLK:1] evals & evecs for symmetric tensor[3,3] (requires sequences)
59    
60    [GLK:2] Save Diderot output to nrrd, instead of "mip.txt"
61      For grid of strands, save to similarly-shaped array
62      For list of strands, save to long 1-D (or 2-D for non-scalar output) list
63      For ragged things (like tractography output), will need to save both
64        complete list of values, as well as list of start indices and lengths
65        to index into complete list
66    
67    [GLK:3] Use of Teem's "hest" command-line parser for getting
68    any input variables that are not defined in the source file
69    
70    [GLK:4] ability to declare a field so that probe positions are
71    *always* "inside"; with various ways of mapping the known image values
72    to non-existant index locations.  One possible syntax emphasizes that
73    there is a index mapping function that logically precedes convolution:
74      F = bspln3 ⊛ (img ◦ clamp)
75      F = bspln3 ⊛ (img ◦ repeat)
76      F = bspln3 ⊛ (img ◦ mirror)
77    where "◦" or "∘" is used to indicate function composition
78    
79    extend norm (|exp|) to all tensor types [DONE for vectors and matrices]
80    
81  ability to emit/track/record variables into dynamically re-sized  ability to emit/track/record variables into dynamically re-sized
82  runtime buffer  runtime buffer
83    
84  evals & evecs for symmetric tensor[3,3]  Want: allow X *= Y, X /= Y, X += Y, X -= Y to mean what they do in C,
85    provided that X*Y, X/Y, X+Y, X-Y are already supported.
86    Nearly every Diderot program would be simplified by this.
87    
88    Want: non-trivial field expressions & functions:
89      image(2)[2] Vimg = load(...);
90      field#0(2)[] Vlen = |Vimg ⊛ bspln3|;
91    to get a scalar field of vector length, or
92      field#2(2)[] F = Fimg ⊛ bspln3;
93      field#0(2)[] Gmag = |∇F|;
94    to get a scalar field of gradient magnitude, or
95      field#2(2)[] F = Fimg ⊛ bspln3;
96      field#0(2)[] Gmsq = ∇F•∇F;
97    to get a scalar field of squared gradient magnitude, which is simpler
98    to differentiate.  However, there is value in having these, even if
99    the differentiation of them is not supported (hence the indication
100    of "field#0" for these above)
101    
102    Want: ability to apply "normalize" to a field itself, e.g.
103      field#0(2)[2] V = normalize(Vimg ⊛ ctmr);
104    so that V(x) = normalize((Vimg ⊛ ctmr)(x)).
105    Having this would simplify expression of standard LIC method, and
106    would also help express other vector field expressions that arise
107    in vector field feature exraction.
