Clip shows the multi-scale scheme operating and the low-frequency anulus growing as we refine the point set.

The relaxation achieved for the low frequencies at the coarse scales is preserved when refining the poitn set to the next scale where the upper frequency band is relaxed (and hence the anulus grows).


Clip shows the points and kernels being stochastically relaxed in a spatially-varying target density scenario.


Clip shows how large points are relaxed only at the coarser scales and remain static at the finer levels while the rest of the points relax.
