Relation with other TCs
Discrete geometry is necessary in image analysis and shape representation in general. Some fields such as biomedical (TC9) and remote sensing (TC7) applications can take advantage of progress within discrete geometry. Combining the works coming from Computer Vision and Image Understanding (TC4) and Graph based representations (TC15) with Discrete Geometry will certainly lead to new results.
Several others topics have some common research or applications with discrete geometry. Among them, we can emphasize :
