My talk covers challenges as well as recent advances in quad mesh generation. Based on the idea of integer-grid maps (IGMs) I will show how to formulate the quad mesh generation problem as an instance of mixed-integer nonlinear programming. With the help of geometric insight it is furthermore possible to modify the formulation into a low-dimensional mixed-integer quadratic program, which is much better suited for modern branch-and-cut optimizer. The resulting algorithm does not only outperform previous approaches in terms of mesh quality but also provides rich user-controls for interactive mesh design.
Research Seminar Announcement
In the course of the Visual Computing research seminar Dr. Evgeny Gladilin from the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) Gatersleben will give a talk with subsequent discussion about the topic Aufgaben der Bildanalyse in quantitativer Pflanzenforschung.
We would like to invite everyone interested to join us. The research seminar will take place in on Friday 21.04.2017, 13:00 c.t. in G29-R335.
