Fair Shape Design

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Room: Pueblos

Computer Aided Geometric Design develops many methods for curve and surface generation. Often pretty or fair curves and surfaces are required in applications. Fair shape design addresses ways to inspect the geometric quality of these curves and surfaces and develops strategies to remove shape imperfections. To improve the quality of a shape, suitable quantitative fairness measures are used. In this minisymposium, the speakers will present new ideas for shape optimization and discuss the transfer of fairing algorithms to practice.
