C6: Visualization in billiards and contact geometry
Abbondandolo, Albers, Geiges, Sadlo
The aim of this project is to develop novel concepts and techniques for the visual analysis of billiard dynamics and contact geometry. These shall help reveal and explore new phenomena, raise new questions and guide theoretical considerations.
