**College Algebra Demystified**
**A BETTER WAY TO COLLEGE ALGEBRA X-PERTISE**
One of the most valuable tools acquired in a university education, college algebra is essential for courses from the sciences to computing, engineering to mathematics. It can help you do better on placement exams, even before college, and it's useful in solving the computations... | | **Designing Relational Database Systems**Relational databases are tricky beasts. Other kinds of commercial software are infinitely easier to understand. Word processors are really just high-tech typewriters, and it's pretty clear that the backspace key beats that little jar of white stuff cold. Spreadsheets present a familiar enough paradigm, even to non-accountants, and email is... | | **Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling (Mathematics and Visualization)**Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling are two distinct domains of research, with few interactions up to now, though closely linked. On the one hand, Algebraic Geometry has developed an impressive theory targeting the understanding of geometric objects defined algebraically. On the other hand, Geometric Modeling is using every day, in practical... |
