Special Issue "Topological Modeling"
A special issue of Mathematics (ISSN 2227-7390).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 December 2018).
Interests: shape modeling; image synthesis; artistic depiction; image based lighting; computer aided caricature; electrical engineering and computer aided architecture
Topological Modeling is an umbrella term that covers all shape modeling approaches that includes topological modifications. Topological modeling researchers usually borrow some relatively obscure mathematical ideas and turn them into applications to design interesting shapes. Applications include but not limited to modelling orientable 2-manifold surfaces, modeling knots and links, modelling non-orientable 2-manifold surfaces, modeling Seifert Surfaces, designing regular maps, branched covering surfaces, immersions of 3-manifolds, woven and knitted objects, and origami. The subjects also include areas related to shape construction, such as paper unfolding, and physical shape constructions with developable surfaces.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
