Ph.D. Carnegie Mellon, 1993
Dissertation Title: Grammatical Programming: An Algebraic Approach to the Description of Design Spaces
"Grammatica implements a paradigm of exploratory design by incorporating a language for describing styles and standards of design and functioning as a system that can generate examples of a given style," explains Carlson. "In the back end of the system, Mathematica solves the nonlinear constraints that arise in the descriptions of designs, and in the front end, Mathematica renders the results."
Chris Carlson works on 2D and 3D interactive graphics at Wolfram Research.
