08221 Summary -- Geometric Modeling

08221.SWM.1537.pdf (0.03 MB)


Geometric Modeling is an area drawing from computer science, mathematics,
engineering, and the life sciences. It is concerned with the computer
representation of objects as diverse as
- brain scans
- mathematical functions
- terrains
- airplane wings

and many more.
The seminar succeeded in bringing together leading researchers to present
and discuss radically different approaches to the challenge of modeling
complex geometric phenomena on the computer.
Acquisition, representation and analysis of 3-dimensional geometry
call for the combination of technically complex and often
interdisciplinary approaches that are grounded both in classical mathematics
and computer science data structures and theory.
