A quote

by on Jul.31, 2014, under Literature, Quotes

At the sight of the still intact city, he remembered his great international precursors and set the whole place on fire with his artillery in order that those who came after him might work off their excess energies in rebuilding.
— The tin drum, Gunter Grass

Bye bye, and thanks for all the machinery

by on Jul.16, 2014, under Research

The SoCG community had decided to leave the ACM. There is a good discussion of the topics involved on the making socg blog. The Rubicon had been crossed, the kosher sausage had been cut, etc.

I expect other conferences to leave the ACM in the near future. Of course, it is very hard to predict, especially the future…

Who is Gabriel?

by on Jul.02, 2014, under Research

Gabriel graphs (wikipedia) are named after Ruben Kuno Gabriel, who invented the biplot. The Garbriel graph was suggested as a way to cluster together closeby localities, a notion that is somewhat similar in feel to some of the ideas used in curve reconsturction. The original paper is from 1969, and appeared in a biology journal. The other author of this article is Robert Sokal a biostatistician, that developed Numerical taxonomy (i.e., clustering of biological data).
