The Mangrove TDS Library (Credits & Contacts)

A C++ Tool for the Fast Prototyping of the Topological Data Structures

David Canino

Authorship

The Mangrove TDS Library (Versions 1.0 and 1.1 on the SourceForge.net) was designed and developed by Dr. David Canino (e-mail: David Canino) during his PhD. studies (2008-2012) at the Department of Computer Science, Bioengineering, Robotics, and Engineering Systems (DIBRIS), University of Genova, Genova (GE), Italy.

His PhD. research was conducted under the supervision of Professor Leila De Floriani (e-mail: leila.defloriani@unige.it), DIBRIS, University of Genova, Genova (GE), Italy.

A first description of these versions is provided by his PhD thesis, named "Tools for Modeling and Analysis of Non-Manifold Shapes" (Official Version 2012).

The stable version 2.0 of the Mangrove TDS Library (SourceForge.net) contains several improvements, applied during the Postdoc studies (April 1, 2012- April 1, 2014) of Dr. David Canino at the DIBRIS.


VERY IMPORTANT:

From April 2, 2014 Dr. David Canino (e-mail: David Canino) is no longer affiliated to the DIBRIS, and his research activity is no longer supervised by Professor Leila De Floriani (e-mail: leila.defloriani@unige.it).

This means that all opinions and conclusions in the new versions of this library are personal, and do not necessarily reflect the official opinions of the DIBRIS, and of Professor Leila De Floriani (e-mail: leila.defloriani@unige.it).

In case of controversy and questions, please contact directly Dr. David Canino (e-mail: David Canino).

Research Fundings

The Mangrove TDS Library (SourceForge.net) (from the version 1.0 to the version 2.0) was supported up to April 1, 2014 by the Italian Ministry for Education, University and Research (Project PRIN '09), and the National Science Foundation under the grant "Modeling and Analysis of Multidimensional Shapes and Scalar Fields" IIS-1116747.

The version 3.0 (and higher) of the Mangrove TDS Library is funded by no academic, research, and industrial institution.
