From sampling to fluid dynamics through geometric discretization

Speaker: Mathieu Desbrun, Computing and Mathematical Sciences, Caltech
Location: Annenberg 105

The notion of Voronoi diagram involves a rather trivial geometric construct that has found applications in a variety of scientific fields.
In this talk I will discuss an extension (called power diagram) that has recently been shown to be particularly relevant in the context of graphics applications in 2D and 3D, including sampling patterns, self-supporting masonry structures, and fluid dynamics.
