Geometric Modeling and Industrial Geometry

is a research unit at the Institute of Discrete Mathematics and Geometry.

Our research is guided by a fruitful interplay between theory and applications. It is based on expertise in various fields of geometry, especially classical geometry, and is strongly related to Visual Computing.

We are well known for pioneering contributions to Architectural Geometry, an emerging field of study which is motivated by geometric problems appearing in connection with geometrically complex structures in contemporary architecture.

Our research group is part of the interdisciplinary research Center for Geometry and Computational Design. [GCD]
