Differential Geometry—mainly of curves and surfaces—represented from the very beginning a natural and standard tool of Imaging and Graphics. However, only with the true advent of the “Digital Age”, has Discrete Differential Geometry been developed and recognized as a self-standing, active and important field of study.
Here, “discrete” means that one does not merely restrict himself only to approximations, but rather operates on a deeper level, by considering various possible discretizations of such classical notions as curvature, geodesics and connection, to mention just some of the most basic and essential ones.
The ensuing applications are manifold, and range from sampling and reconstruction to segmentation, and from smoothing and denoising to registration and modeling. Moreover, they transcend their specific boundaries (already far from narrow), and have applications in Medical Imaging, Pattern Recognition, Manifold Learning and Robotics.
It is the goal of this Special Issue to explore, through its constituting papers, this multifaceted, dynamic and ever-evolving field of study.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Axioms is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
