PhD proposal: Simulation of random geometric structures
The use of non independent distribution is very difficult to analyze theo- retically, thus having access to simulations of practical instances would be of tremendous help to guide the intuition and to lead to reasonable conjectures. Unfortunately, the generation of useful random instances is a difficult question in itself. We plan to attack three specific questions, as described below: simulation of geometric structures, of conditioned structures, and of dependent pointsets.
The goal of this research is to design and realize tools for the generation of several random geometric objects. These tools will be used to benchmark geometric algorithms and to establish new probability conjectures.
