Advances in Solid Modeling

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

Classical solid modeling deals with mathematical models and computer representations of rigid homogeneous subsets of Euclidean space. This mini-symposium focuses on recent advances that aim to extend the success of solid modeling techniques. The speakers will discuss unification of the known representations, parametric families of solids, models for spatially distributed physical properties, and synergy between the academic advances and the latest developments in industry.
