The Geometric Computation Group,
headed by Professor Leonidas Guibas, addresses a variety of algorithmic
problems in modeling physical objects and phenomena, and studies computation,
communication, and sensing as applied to the physical world. Current
foci of interest include the analysis of shape or image collections, geometric modeling with point cloud data,
deformations and contacts, sensor networks for lightweight distributed
estimation/reasoning, the analysis of mobility data, and the modeling the shape and motion biological
macromolecules and other biological structures. More theoretical
work is aimed at investigating fundamental computational issues
and limits in geometric computing and modeling, including the handling of uncertainty.
The group gratefully acknolwdges the support of the Computer Forum for its activities.
