Smith College, Northampton, MA
July 5- 31, 1993

PROGRAM: Amherst, Hampshire, Holy Cross, Mount Holyoke, Smith and Williams
Colleges, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst will host an NSF-
funded Regional Geometry Institute for approximately 100 discrete geometers,
graduate students, undergraduates and high school teachers on the campus
of Smith College in Northampton, MA. The Institute will develop
two broad themes, computational geometry and tilings, in parallel lecture

The Speakers and titles are:

First week
Joseph O'Rourke (Smith) "Intro. to Computational Geometry"
Robert Connelly (Cornell) "Models and Theorems"

Second week
Godfried Toussaint (McGill) "2D Algorithms: Triangulations
and Arrangements"
John Conway (Princeton) "Symmetries, Lattices, and Tilings"

Third week
Scott Drysdale (Dartmouth) "Voroni Diagrams"
Charles Radin (Texas) "Tilings and Ergodic Theory"

Fourth week
Ludwig Danzer (Dortmund) "Quasicrystal Tilings"
Herbert Edelsbrunner(Illinois) "3D Triangulations"

There will also be approximately forty lectures on current research in
several other areas of discrete geometry, a weekly Education Forum, and
a weekly series of talks by scientists and artists.

PARTICIPANTS: The Institute seeks approximately 40 mathematicians who
have active research programs in or closely related to discrete geometry
and who are interested in participating in a "vertically integrated"
Institute. The Institute will pay travel, room and board, and a modest
stipend. There is also funding for about 16 graduate students.
Preference will be given to participants who can stay the entire month.

INFORMATION: For application forms and more information about the Institute,
contact Regional Geometry Institute, Clark Science Center, Smith College,
Northampton, MA 01063 USA; the email address is
(application can be handled entirely by email). Deadline for applications:
March 30, 1993. The Institute Director is Marjorie Senechal, Department
of Mathematics, Smith College.
