(a) Iconic representation. (b) Due to the shown separation surfaces, the
topological skeleton of the vector field looks
visually cluttered.
(c) Visualization of the topological skeleton using
saddle connectors.

Abstract
One of the reasons that topological methods have a limited popu-
larity for the visualization of complex 3D flow fields is the fact that
such topological structures contain a number of separating stream
