to think about what it means. What is Computer Graphics? Simply defined, Computer Graphics (or CG) is the images generated or modified on a computer. These images may be visualizations of real data or imaginary depictions of a fantasy world.

The use of Computer Graphics effects in movies such as The Incredibles and games such as Myst...

Complex environmental problems are often reduced to an inappropriate level of simplicity. While this book does not seek to present a comprehensive scientific and technical coverage of all aspects of the subject matter, it makes the issues, ideas, and language of environmental engineering accessible and understandable to the nontechnical...

Some TIME ago a group of mathematicians and computer scientists (including the editors
of this volume) thought of making a scientific pilgrimage to the birthplace of al-Khw&rizmf,
the outstanding ninth-century mathematician who gave his name to the word "algorithm".
As his name indicates, al-Khwarizmi came from the Khorezm...

This upper-division laboratory supplement for courses in abstract algebra consists of several Mathematica packages programmed as a foundation for group and ring theory. Additionally, the "user's guide" illustrates the functionality of the underlying code, while the lab portion of the book reflects the contents of the...

'I recommend this book to anyone who wants to appreciate the often subtle interactions between algorithm research and engineering applications. For the engineer, it comprehensively summarizes 25 years of intellectual development in the understanding of the basic Lanczos algorithm and its many variants. For the numerical analysts, it describes the...

This revised and extensively expanded edition of Computability and Complexity Theory comprises essential materials that are core knowledge in the theory of computation. The book is self-contained, with a preliminary chapter describing key mathematical concepts and notations. Subsequent chapters move from the qualitative aspects of...

Coalgebraic logic is an important research topic in the areas of concurrency theory, semantics, transition systems and modal logics. It provides a general approach to modeling systems, allowing us to apply important results from coalgebras, universal algebra and category theory in novel ways. Stochastic systems provide important tools for...

Baffled by maths? Then don't give up hope. John Vince will show you how to understand many of the mathematical ideas used in computer animation, virtual reality, CAD, and other areas of computer graphics. In thirteen chapters you will rediscover - and hopefully discover for the first time a new way of understanding - the mathematical techniques...

This informally written text provides students with a clear introduction into the subject of linear algebra. Topics covered include matrix multiplication, row reduction, matrix inverse, orthogonality and computation. The self-teaching book is loaded with examples and graphics and provides a wide array of probing problems, accompanying...

This book provides an introduction to modern homotopy theory through the lens of higher categories after Joyal and Lurie, giving access to methods used at the forefront of research in algebraic topology and algebraic geometry in the twenty-first century. The text starts from scratch - revisiting results from classical homotopy theory such as...
