Advances in Solid Modeling
10:30 AM-12:30 PM
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.
