Algebraic Geometry in Algebraic
Statistics and Geometric Modeling
Texas Advanced Research Program
This project is a collaboration between faculty and
students at Sam Houston State University
and Texas A&M University to investigate
some common algebraic geometric structures in algebraic statistics,
geometric modeling, and algebraic geometry.
For example, the animation at left illustrates the how, under a toric
degeneration (a concept in algebraic geometry), a
cubic Bézier triangle
degenerates to its control polyhedron (concepts from geometric modeling).
