Abstract:

The Cornell Computer Science Modeling and Simulation Project was founded on the belief that electronic prototypes would have a significant impact on our nations technological growth. From the projects inception, members of the research team have focused their attention on the investigation of fundamental computer science principles that underlie real-world representations. Our overriding objective is to develop a science base that supports electronic simulation systems to be used in computer aided design and engineering analysis. To this end, we are carrying out a broad-based research program to develop the underlying methodology that supports representation, editing, and simulation of objects, tasks, and systems. In our original proposal, we stressed three areas of research solid modeler robustness, user friendly modeling systems, and control of complex objects. Results in each of these areas are summarized below.
