The main goal is to bring together researchers from the fields of geometry and dynamics and from different research institutions involved in the new research center SFB/TRR109 but also to create interest for the topic amongst graduate students. Besides the presentation of topics related to the different projects the possibility to informally meet and discuss research during the workshop will enhance the cooperation within but also outside the defined research projects in the future.
Für die Realisierung komplexer Gebäude werden immer öfter Mathematiker als Berater heran gezogen. Ich zeige an welchen Themen wir bei der Planung und Durchführung mitwirken. An Beispielen verdeutliche ich wie durch Optimierung Baukosten gesenkt werden können.
We present an algorithm to approximate the velocity field
of an isolated vortex in an infinite ideal fluid (“smoke“) by
the field generated by a finite number of closed vortex filaments (“smoke rings“).
These vortex filaments in turn can be
used to efficiently compute the time evolution of the flow.
We indicate how the same ideas also can be applied in the
context of approximating smooth surfaces by polyhedra.
This was the third Discrete Differential Geometry conference at Oberwohlfach.
The subject has evolved significantly since its beginning a decade ago. This year’s
conference highlighted advances in new areas: in discrete exterior calculus and
cluster algebras in geometry, as well as in some older ones: discrete uniformization,
polyhedra, applications to PDE.
