Scattered Data Modelling

8:30 AM-9:15 AM
Chair: Nira Dyn, Tel-Aviv University, Israel
Room: Belle Meade

The construction of geometry from scattered data brings together the problem of data approximation and the problem of geometric design. Most algorithms for scattered data approximation have limited flexibility for incorporating design issues suited for specific application areas, e.g. cartography. For some problems this can be done by introducing constraints in the geometry construction, however, providing the user with flexible software tools seems equally important. The speaker will focus on selected scattered data problems using constrained and composite methods, and the design of numerical software for scattered data modelling using object oriented techniques.
