How to get there?




The subject of geometric invariants has a history of two hundred years. The classical invariant theory studies the intrinsic properties of polynomials. In the procedure of its development, more abstract algebraic concepts and systems emerged, such as brackets, matroids, tableaux, tensors, extensors and geometric algebras. Recent decades have witnessed a dramatic resurgence of this venerable subject, with dramatic new applications, ranging from topology and geometry, to physics, computer-aided automated reasoning and design, robotics, computer vision and pattern recognition. The rise of computer algebra systems has brought previously infeasible computations within our grasp. As a result, the subject should hold a particular fascination, not only for students and practitioners, but also for mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists working on efficient methods and algorithms for geometric computation.

The International Workshop on Geometric Invariance and Applications in Engineering (GIAE) is organized by the Key Laboratory of Mathematics Mechanization of the Chinese Academy of Sciences(CAS), the National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition of CAS, and Xi'an University of Science and Technology. It aims at the interchange of views and ideas on the development of related subjects for the purpose of world-wide cooperations, by establishing a nice forum for people working on related subjects to meet, collaborate and exchange ideas. The main scope of the workshop includes the theoretical explorations in
