The description of singular varieties (self-intersecting curves or surfaces for example) arises in a wide range of applications, from scientific visualization to the design of robotic mechanisms. Currently, most software provide either (a) numerical approximations without topological guarantee; or (b) rely on symbolic computer algebra methods to handle… CONTINUE READING
