Robert J. Lang
Robert J. Lang is an American physicist who is also one of the
foremost origami artists and theorists in the world. He has authored
13 books and numerous articles on origami art and design. His work has
been exhibited in the US, Europe and Japan, and is noted for combining
the Western school of mathematical origami design with the Eastern
emphasis on line and form.
Mark Pauly is a professor at the CS department of EPFL Lausanne.
His research interests include computer graphics and animation,
geometry processing, shape modeling and analysis, and digital fabrication.
Besides a great many significant contributions to these topics he has
also published on the art of caustics and shadows, and
is a co-founder of faceshift AG, an EPFL spin-off
that specializes on face tracking and animation
Amit Singer is professor of applied and computational mathematics at
Princeton University. His research is focused
on massive data sets and structural biology, in particular
on developing algorithms for 3D
structuring of macromolecules using cryo-electron microscopy. His
mathematical interests include dimensionality reduction,
signal and image processing, spectral methods
convex optimization and semidefinite programming. In 2010 he received
the presidential early career award for scientists and engineers.
