Topological Models for Physical Computing

Richard S. Palmer and Vadim Shapiro

Modeling the interaction of geometric form and physical behavior dominates many engineering and scientific activities. Broadly, such activities can be divided into two categories: (1) simulation and understanding the physical behavior of existing objects and devices, and (2) synthesis of new objects and devices that exhibit a desired physical behavior. Our research is focused on developing a unified theory, computer representations, algorithms, and systems necessary to support a wide range of these activities.
