The lecture will introduce selected concepts from differential geometry and their role in solving current application problems.
The topics include curvature measures, geometric flows, minimal surfaces, harmonic mapping, parallel transport, branched coverings, as well as their discretization and implementation.
Practical problems come for example from the fields of geometric design, geometry processing, visualization, materials science, medicine, architecture.
