Euler Mathematical Institute, Saint-Petersburg, Russia
Organizers: A.I. Bobenko, A.M. Vershik, G.M. Ziegler
Local arrangements: Nikolai Mnev, Elena Novikova
The theory of polyhedral surfaces is a very concrete special case (and testing ground) of an active mathematical terrain where differential geometry (providing the classical theory for smooth surfaces) and discrete geometry (classically concenrned with polytopes, simplicial complexes, etc.) meet and interact. The goal of the workshop is to bring together the mathematicians working with various aspects of discrete/differential geometry. The topics include:
We expect about 20 participants sharing close mathematical interests.
