Discrete and Computational Geometry Laboratory KAIST
Department of Computer Science

The Discrete and Computational Geometry Laboratory is formed by Otfried Cheong and his graduate students and postdocs.


Members

You can find all of us in room 3439 in the Computer Science Building (E3-1), or call us at extension 7742.


Research

We do research in two related areas:

Computational Geometry

Computational Geometry is the area of computer science that studies efficient algorithms for geometric problems. The problems studied come from applications in graphics, CAD, robotics, GIS, and other areas of geometric computation, but are studied from a theoretical point of view. Algorithms are formally analyzed and proven correct.

Otfried Cheong is one of the authors of the standard textbook on computational geometry.

Discrete Geometry

Discrete geometry is an area of mathematics that studies combinatorial properties of geometric objects. Going back to Kepler and Gauss, the field owes much to the work of Paul Erdös.

Otfried Cheong holds a position as an affiliate professor at the Department of Mathematical Sciences. He teaches courses on discrete geometry and related topics at the math department, and can be the advisor of math students on all levels who wish to graduate on a topic in this area.


Visitors

We have quite a few visitors from all over the world. See the visitor log for details.
