Matheon 2002-2006: F1 - Discrete Differential Geometry

This is another project within the DFG Research Center MATHEON - "Mathematics for key technologies".  The main goal of this project is the discretization of classical differential geometry: to find proper discrete analogs of differential geometric objects, notions, and methods, and to develop a corresponding theory. Such a discrete differential geometry has applications in computer graphics, numerics, and visualization.
