    (Color online) (a)–(e) are the substeps of 2D gas-liquid interface tracking in OctNB-MultiFLIP; (f) shows the constructed octree with fine grid cells near the interface; (g) discretization of the variable coefficient Poisson equation on a quadtree; (h) computation of $\theta$ for two cells crossed by the interface (red colored curve), where $\mathrm{\Delta}$ is the distance between the two cells and $\kappa$ is the curvature at the interface; (i) shows comparisons of particle number and run-time of OcNB-MultiFLIP to MultiFLIP for different cases.
