Geometric Modeling and 3D Reconstruction

Description / Outline

In Geometric Modeling, we examine methods to generate 3D-models (e.g. for later rendering or visualization), and to process and analyse these models.  This includes representations of 3D surfaces in a computer, and algorithms for the animation of these objects, or their physical simulation. To generate such 3D models from real world objects, we look into algorithms for 3D-reconstruction, where 3D-models are generated from images or with the help of more advanced sensors, in particular depth cameras such as the Microsoft Kinect.
