I would like to bring your attention about a seminar course that I am
offering this Fall: Geometric Processing - CS 795 004

Quote from Polygon Mesh Processing: "Geometry processing, or
mesh processing is to design efficient algorithms for the
acquisition, reconstruction, analysis, manipulation,
simulation, and transmission of complex 3D models.
Applications of geometry processing algorithms already cover
a wide range of areas from multimedia, entertainment, and
classical computer-aided design, to biomedical computing,
reverse engineering, and scientific computing."

In this class, we will be reading research papers related to the
following topics

  * Mesh Smoothing, Simplification, Deformation
  * Mesh Reconstruction, Repair, Registration
  * Mesh Decomposition/Meshing
  * Mesh Boolean operations
  * Continuous collision detection
  * penetration depth estimation
  * Swept volume, offset, Minkowski sum

More information can be found here:

This class was last offered in Spring 2011 and the final projects
of students in the class were published in SIAM Conference on
Geometric and Physical Modeling, a top conference on Computer Aided Design.

Please let me know if you have questions.
