We plan to investigate some applications of Clifford algebras in computer graphics through the analysis of three problems, namely: (i) the development of algebraic models for the description of geometric objects and their transformations, (ii) the formulation of discrete versions of the Clifford calculus, for applications in the discretization of continuum problems, (iii) the study of the use of the concept of spinors in the formulation of conformal immersions for the parametrization of surfaces.
