This workshop will feature interactions between geometric modeling and real algebraic geometry at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley the weekend of April 3 and 4,2004. It is embedded within the larger program on Real Algebraic Geometry during a period of activity on applications of real algebraic geometry. We expect about half of the participants for this workshop to be drawn from the MSRI community and local Universities, while the rest will be experts from elsewhere in the United States and Europe. Geometric modeling and algebraic geometry both study curves and surfaces generated by polynomials, but for very different purposes. In algebraic geometry these objects are studied for their theoretical interest, while geometric modeling uses them to build computer models for industrial design and manufacture. The curves and surfaces in geometric modeling are in fact objects of real algebraic geometry. Interactions between these fields have been increasing in recent years, but there has not yet been a meeting on these interactions in the US, nor one focused on real algebraic geometry. This workshop will bring together researchers from both fields and will be important for the evolution of these scientific links in US. Participants C. D'Andrea (UCB) Federico Ardila (MSRI) C.

Show Funding

To apply for funding, you must register by the funding application deadline displayed above.

Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding awards are typically made 6 weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadline are considered only if additional funds become available.

Show Lodging

MSRI does not hire an outside company to make hotel reservations for our workshop participants, or share the names and email addresses of our participants with an outside party. If you are contacted by a business that claims to represent MSRI and offers to book a hotel room for you, it is likely a scam. Please do not accept their services.

MSRI has preferred rates at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza, depending on room availability. Guests can call the hotel's main line at 510-845-7300 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Institute discount. To book online visit this page (the MSRI rate will automatically be applied).

MSRI has preferred rates at the Graduate Berkeley, depending on room availability. Reservations may be made by calling 510-845-8981. When making reservations, guests must request the MSRI preferred rate. Enter in the Promo Code MSRI123 (this code is not case sensitive).

MSRI has preferred rates at the Berkeley Lab Guest House, depending on room availability. Reservations may be made by calling 510-495-8000 or directly on their website. Select "Affiliated with the Space Sciences Lab, Lawrence Hall of Science or MSRI." When prompted for your UC Contact/Host, please list Chris Marshall (coord@msri.org).

MSRI has a preferred rates at Easton Hall and Gibbs Hall, depending on room availability. Guests can call the Reservations line at 510-204-0732 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Inst. rate.
