Reconstructing the past – digital approaches to restore form and infer function in fossils
July 21, 2015 11:00
Speaker: Stephan Lautenschlager (University of Bristol)
Talk at the Max Planck Weizmann Center

Max Planck Weizmann Center MPWC Seminar Room Biocity Deutscher Platz 5b, 04103 Leipzig

Abstract:
By their very nature, fossils are usually incomplete and distorted and, with few exceptions, only preserve the hard parts (such as bones, teeth or shells) of an extinct organism. This presents a considerable problem for the study of fossils, as information about taxonomic relationships, appearance, behaviour and ecology of extinct animals are inferred from the morphology of the preserved remains. In this talk, I want to present different computational methods and techniques, how both hard- and soft tissues can be digitally reconstructed from fossils. Furthermore, different approaches are presented how this information on form can be used to infer possible function in different extinct vertebrates (cynodonts and early mammals, dinosaurs) using the engineering techniques Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Multibody Dynamics Analysis (MDA).

The series featuring external speakers takes place roughly every two months and typically on Friday early afternoons. There is one speaker per session who will speak for 60 minutes with up to 30 minutes for questions. Refreshments are provided at the end of the sessions. The committee organizing the seminar series consists of: Aida Andrés, Catherine Crockford, Federico Rossano, Alexander Stoessel, Sandra Jacob and Jörg Noack. Please contact any of them with comments or suggestions.
