Bajaj gives talk to International Meshing Roundtable Bajaj gives talk to International Meshing Roundtable

ICES Professor Chandrajit Bajaj gave the banquet talk at Sandia National Laboratories' 24th Annual International Meshing Roundtable Oct. 13.

Bajaj spoke to nature's abundance of meshes that it uses to refine its form and function models through its own multi-scale, multi-chemistry/physics simulations. His use of rich visuals offered what he called "a few but surprising examples of nature’s geometric dexterity and some of the lessons we continue to learn from it." Read more.
