Discrete Differential Geometry
An Applied Introduction
Time: Tuesday, Thursday 11:00-12:15pm
Location: TBA
This course introduces the student to the ideas of discrete differential geometry, geometric modeling, and physical simulation. The student will learn about continuous and discrete differential geometric operators, and apply this knowledge to build their own mesh smoother (using discrete mean and Gaussian curvature), cloth- and thin-shell simulator (using a discrete Shape Operator), remesher (using a discrete Laplacian), and fluid flow visualizer (using Discrete Exterior Calculus and Hodge Decomposition). Some students will complete an independent project, involving math and/or programming, combined with a reduced assignment load.
