Beyond Simplicial: Advanced Discretizations of 3D Domains for Visualization and Simulation
A key component in computational applications that operate on three-dimensional domains, such as digitized real-world objects or virtually designed assets, are techniques for the discretization of these domains and of data defined over these. Goal is the representation or approximation by a finite number of compactly representable elements, enabling efficient processing using practical algorithms. Drawing from solid theoretical results, discretizations based on simplicial complexes (called triangular or tetrahedral meshes in this context) have been prevalent in practice for decades. However, non-simplicial discretizations are known to be beneficial for a variety of use cases. In this talk recent advances in the field of algorithmic generation and optimization of non-simplicial complexes for the representation and approximation of three-dimensional domains will be discussed. We will consider the case of elements which are non-simplicial combinatorially (e.g. complexes of quadrilateral or hexahedral elements) as well as the case of elements being non-simplicial geometrically (i.e. non-linear elements). We will touch upon a variety of questions and problems that still are open in this field — from a theoretical perspective (e.g. existence conditions, quality bounds) as well as a practical point of view (numerical robustness, efficiency).

From Berry-Esseen to Stein
Starting from the classical Berry-Esseen theorem and characteristic functions, we give a gentle introduction to Stein’s method along with recent applications to central limit theorems with dependence arising in random graph theory
