Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling
27-28-29 September 2004, Nice, France.
Salle de conférence, Lab. J.A. Dieudonné, Dép. de Mathématiques, Parc Valrose
The aim of this workshop is to present new results, algorithms,
or applications of effective algebraic geometry in Geometric Modeling.
On the one hand, Algebraic Geometry has developed an impressive theory
targeting the understanding of geometric objects defined algebraically.
the other hand, Geometric Modeling is using every day, in practical and
difficult problems, virtual shapes based on algebraic models.
Could these two domains benefit from each other ? Recent and
interesting developments in this direction are about to convince
us to answer yes. The workshop will try to reinforce the natural bridge
which exists between
these two areas, expecting as a result, a better analysis of the key
problems and of the related approaches. A non-exhaustive list of topics
The meeting will be held in the spirit of a similar
in Vilnius 2002. A special emphasis will be given on applications of
algebraic methods in Computer Aided Geometric Design.
It will take place at Nice University, Valrose Parc.
