Distance Geometry (DG) is a field of geometry which focuses on
defining and working with geometrical objects using distances between
points rather than the points themselves. From classical results such
as Heron's theorem, Euler's conjecture on the rigidity of polyhedra,
Maxwell's forces diagrams, and the link to positive semidefinite
matrices, DG has seen a veritable "engineering renaissance" in the XX
century. DG is used in architecture (rigidity of structures), spatial
conformation of molecules from inter-atomic distances, localization of
mobile sensors in communication networks, control of unmanned
underwater vehicles, control of robotic arms, solution of problems in
spatial logic, and more.
