Discrete Models in Geometry and Topology - 3rd ERC Workshop

Third SDModels Workshop - Discrete Models in Geometry and Topology 

Freie Universität Berlin

March 23-26, 2015

arrival: Sunday, March 22

departure: Thursday, March 26

This will be a workshop with lectures, presentations, informal discussions and posters that treat discrete models in the areas of geometry and topology, including extremal discrete geometry and topological combinatorics. It is the final workshop of the 2010-2015 ERC Advanced Grant Project "SDModels: Structured Discrete Models as a basis for studies in Geometry, Numerical Analysis, Topology, and Visualization"
