Designing, implementing, and evaluating algorithms on geometric data sets.
Geometry was one of the first intellectual pursuits of humans. Thousands of years ago it was motivated by the pragmatics of calculating property lines and predicting stellar movements. Geometry is now an essential model for almost every technological activity. In the 1960s, the ubiquity of computers and geometric models has motivated a search for efficient, effective and elegant algorithms for dealing with geometric data sets. In this project we develop new geometric algorithms. Our algorithms are used by a wide range of industries, from statistical database queries, to efficient data mining, to biotechnology, to automobile modelling, to robot motion planning.
