Staff Introduction

HOFFMANN, Tim / Guest Professor

My research lies in the field of discrete differential geometry and its applications in visualization as well as its connections to the theory of integrable systems. The main subject of discrete differential geometry is investigating discrete analogues of objects of classical differential geometry. Choosing "good" discretizations can preserve the integrable structure that lies behind many of the well known types of special curves, surfaces, parametrizations etc. This in turn leads to very stable and "well behaving" discretizations that preserve the integrability. These discrete integrable equations are of interest in mathematical physics.
