## SIAM GD 2017: Minisymposium on „Discrete Vector Field Analysis and Applications”

Vector-fields are omnipresent in various areas of applied geometry such as flow fields in fluid dynamics, as scalar-, tensor- and frame-fields in visualization, or as gradient or co-gradient fields of potential functions at the core of recent surface parametrization algorithms. Core issues relate to effective discretization, Hodge-type decomposition, design and others. The mini-symposium brings together experts from the various fields to discuss ongoing developments and combine research activities.

Speakers of the MS “Discrete Vector Field Analysis” are Konrad Polthier (Chair, Freie Universität Berlin, http://www.polthier.info/), Olga Diamanti (Stanford Univ., http://web.stanford.edu/~diamanti/), Maks Ovsjanikov (Ecole Polytechnique, http://www.lix.polytechnique.fr/~maks/), and Eugene Zhang (Oregon State, http://web.engr.oregonstate.edu/~zhange/).
