The goal is to develop design methods for flexible quad-surfaces based on a recent progress in their classification. This will involve doing fundamental research (geometry, algebra and complex analysis) and interacting with the other SFB subprojects on the subject of design goals and restrictions.
For some details on the project see the presentation https://www.geometrie.tuwien.ac.at/izmestiev/FlexQuad/Vienna18Koko.pdf
Necessary: PhD degree in Mathematics; interest in interdisciplinary research; good teamworking skills; fluency in English.
Desired: experience in working with Mathematica or Maple; background in algebraic geometry and complex analysis; background in geometric kinematics.
