Diffusion curves provide an exciting new vector primitive that allows for easily editable, freeform, color gradients. They allow an artist to focus on the color boundaries in an image. The rest of the image is filled in a smooth manner by solving a linear system of equations based on the Laplace equation. Current solvers for diffusion curves struggle to be both fast and precise though, making it unattractive to standardize diffusion curves or use them in a vector graphics editor. This thesis gives some insight into why it is hard to obtain a good result and shows how a different kind of solver can make it fundamentally easier to get high quality results.
