Paper: Computing cross fields, a PDE approach based on Ginzburg-Landau theory

We developed an innovative way to compute cross fields in order to spawn points which are consistent with a square grid. The mathematical background is built step by step to highlight the meaningful use of Ginzburg-Landau functional. An interesting result is obtained over the sphere: the anti-cube. The computation is extended to asterisk fields for equilateral triangular grid.
