Algebraic representations in computer-aided design for complex shapes.

ARCADES (Algebraic Representations in Computer-Aided Design for complEx Shapes) is a training network funded under the Marie Skłodowaska-Curie Programme. The goal is to lay the foundation for a new generation of CAD programs using state-of-the-art mathematical approaches.

Computer geometry is an important tool in many different industrial applications. However, the programs used today are based on approaches to processing data based on a model that was developed many years ago. The challenge for ARCADES is to bring together research in algebraic geometry, differential geometry, scientific computing, and algorithm design as the basis for new approaches to solving computer geometry problems.

As part of this research network, RISC Software GmbH supervises PhD students and thus represents an important interface between research work and industrial application.
This project was funded under the Marie Skłodowska Curie Grant Agreement No 675789 from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. For further information please visit the project website:
