Overall Objectives

Research carried out by the Geometrica project team is dedicated to Computational Geometry and Topology and follows three major directions: (a). mesh generation and geometry processing; (b). topological and geometric inference; (c). data structures and robust geometric computation. The overall objective of the project-team is to give effective computational geometry and topology solid mathematical and algorithmic foundations, to provide solutions to key problems as well as to validate theoretical advances through extensive experimental research and the development of software packages that may serve as steps toward a standard for reliable and effective geometric computing. Most notably, Geometrica, together with several partners in Europe, plays a prominent role in the development of cgal , a large library of computational geometry algorithms.
