"The Discrete Charm of Geometry" - the title of both the new film of DGD as well as the free public lecture recently held by Professor Alexander I. Bobenko at University of New South Wales in Australia.
On Tuesday, 28th July 2015 Professor Bobenko of Technische Universität Berlin talked about how useful and beautiful the discretization of continuous structures can be. Several examples like toy spinning tops or smoke rings were presented to illustrate the paradigm of so-called structure-preserving discretisations.
To further improve the understanding of the ideas of this new branch of mathematics, excerpts of the award-winning short film "Conform!" were shown.discrete_charm_of_geometry_public_lecture_unsw_poster.pdf (266.0 KB)
