  • One of the greatest scientific challenges of the 21st century is how to master, organize, and extract useful knowledge from the overwhelming flow of information made available by today's data acquisition systems and computing resources. Visualization is the premium means of taking up this challenge. Topological analysis has recently emerged as a powerful class of methods for visualizing data. From the input data, these methods derive combinatorial structures capturing the essential features of the data. The goal of this project is to design new topological structures, study their properties, and develop efficient algorithms to compute them. In order to solve this challenge, we will combine our expertise in Topology for the Indian partner and in Geometric Modeling for the French partner. We plan to develop new geometric models that accurately and intuitively depict the topological combinatorial structures.
