Organized by Oswin Aichholzer

within the 1st seminar of the FSP S092 Joint Research Program of Industrial Geometry

CGAL (Computational Geometry Algorithms Library) is a comprehensive library of geometric algorithms. The goal of CGAL is to advance the state of the art of geometric computing and to offer robust and efficient programs for research purpose and industrial applications.

The initial development of CGAL is a joint effort of six groups in Europe partially funded by European Projects. The library consists of about 400,000 lines of C++ code with users all over the world.

Since november 2003, CGAL is an Open Source Project. An INRIA startup, GeometryFactory, created on January 6th, 2003, sells CGAL commercial licenses, support for CGAL and customized developments based on CGAL.

This course will present an introduction to the library and the Open Source Project, an introduction to the robustess issues and the way they are solved in CGAL, and the Triangulation package of CGAL.
