I got some now... Thanks for your help! I got...

Medical imaging - how to reconstruct the shape of a tumor from

CAT scans, and other medical measurements. Lots of new

geometry and other math was (and still is being) developed for

this.

Computer graphics is based on geometry - how images are

transformed when viewed in various ways

Structural engineering. What shapes are rigid or flexible,

how they respond to forces and stresses. Statics (resolution

of forces) is essentially geometry. - May 14th 2007, 08:38 PMearboth
