Classical results and methods from geometry have inspired researchers working in Computer Aided Geometric Design over the decades. In particular, many classical results from dierential, algebraic, and descriptive geometry have found various applications and have been used to develop new approaches which are useful in applications. This also includes results from kinematics, which have recently been combined with tools and concepts from computational algebraic geometry, thereby shedding new light on the design and analysis of mechanisms.
This special issue will focus on new results originating from the interaction of computational approaches, such as spline methods, symbolic computation, numerical analysis, and geometric approximation theory, with classical approaches in theoretical and applied geometry. In particular, it will contain relevant papers which that were presented at the Conference on Geometry: Theory and Applications (Kefermarkt, Austria, 2015). Additional submissions are also welcome.
The main topics include, but are not limited to:
Applications of real algebraic geometry and symbolic computation,
Concepts of classical dierential geometry in geometric modeling,
Spline and subdivision theory and its applications,
Discrete dierential geometry,
Kinematical geometry and robotics,
Geometric applications of symbolic computation.
