The project addresses the strong needs for multilevel algorithms in CAD and computer graphics, in particular in industrial applications where large surface meshes must be efficiently processed. Typical applications are solutions of PDEs on surfaces, surface optimization, and automatic mesh parametrization. The focus in this project is on multilevel methods for partial differential equations on manifolds and hierarchical mesh representations with a special focus on surface features and anisotropies.
