## ?Asymptotic Geometric analysis??

Professor David Alonso talks about his research in asymptotic geometric analysis, where he studies convex bodies, such as spheres, squares, cubes or circles, to measure distances that can later be applied to problems of relationships between data, within the conference “What research projects do mathematicians at the UJI?” organized by the directors of the degree […]

## ?Automobiles, buildings and typography: curves and surfaces in the era of design?

?Professor Ana Maria Arnal at the Department of Mathematics of the Universitat Jaume I of Castellón, explains the Bezier curves and their many applications, such as letterpress in printers, boats and automobiles design and architecture, in works such as the Guggenheim Museum by Frank Gehry in Bilbao or the banquet hall of Torre La Mina […]

## ?Polar bears, dishes in frying pans and beer foam?

Professor Vincent Gimeno, of the area of Geometry and Topology in the Department of Mathematics of the Universitat Jaume I of Castellón, addresses some aspects of the isoperimetric problem (research on the curve with the largest area) from different perspectives, presented with worldwide well-known examples, such as polar bears, dishes made in a frying pan […]

## ?What does a girl like me in a place like this??

Irene Epifanio, Professor at the Department of Mathematics at the Universitat Jaume I, gives an overview of her research career that has included many fields such as image analysis, geometry and data analysis, to focus lately on the application of statistics to ergonomic design, specifically, to the design of the cabins of the American air […]

## “Promediando formas”

Professor Mª Victoria Ibáñez explains in her speech “Promediando formas”, the research work that served to model the average of the Spanish feminine figure. Through three-dimensional scanners, researchers recorded the dimensions of more than 10,000 Spanish women and with the help of the theory of convex sets and the statistical analysis of shapes using landmarks, […]
