This well-accepted introduction to computational geometry is a textbook for high-level undergraduate and low-level graduate courses. The focus is on algorithms and hence the book is well suited for students in computer science and engineering. Motivation is provided from the application areas: all solutions and techniques from computational...

Digital geometry emerged as an independent discipline in the second half of the last century. It deals with geometric properties of digital objects and is developed with the unambiguous goal to provide rigorous theoretical foundations for devising new advanced approaches and algorithms for various problems of visual computing. Different aspects...

Focusing on mathematical methods in computer tomography, Image Processing: Tensor Transform and Discrete Tomography with MATLAB^{® }introduces novel approaches to help in solving the problem of image reconstruction on the Cartesian lattice. Specifically, it discusses methods of image processing along...

Data sets in large applications are often too massive to fit completely inside the computer's internal memory. The resulting input/output communication (or I/O) between fast internal memory and slower external memory (such as disks) can be a major performance bottleneck. Algorithms and Data Structures for External Memory surveys the state of...

The study of two-dimensional analytic geometry has gone in and out of fashion several times over the past century, however this classic field of mathematics has once again become popular due to the growing power of personal computers and the availability of powerful mathematical software systems, such as Mathematica, that can provide an ...

This volume contains articles written by leading researchers in the fields of algorithms, architectures, and information systems security. The first five chapters address several challenging geometric problems and related algorithms. These topics have major applications in pattern recognition, image analysis, digital geometry, surface...

Recent years have seen an explosive growth in research in combinatorics and graph theory.
One primary factor in this rapid development has been the advent of computers, and the
parallel study of practical and efficient algorithms. This volume represents an attempt to...

Over the last two or three decades, elliptic curves have been playing an increasingly
important role both in number theory and in related fields such as
cryptography. For example, in the 1980s, elliptic curves started being used
in cryptography and elliptic curve techniques were developed for factorization
and primality...

"In this slender volume, about a dozen experts reflect succinctly on a variety of currently interesting topics, from black hole entropy in string theory to the challenge of dark energy. The book should interest primarily graduate students in physics and also some undergraduates ... is a fine reflection of the internationalism of modern science...

In my first book on geometric algebra in 2007 the preface described how I had been completely
surprised by the existence of geometric algebra, especially after having recently completed a book
on vector analysis where it was not even mentioned! So why am I writing a second book on the
same subject?Well it’s not because I have...

Calculus For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9781118791295) is now being published as Calculus For Dummies, 2nd Edition (9781119293491). While this version features an older Dummies cover and design, the content is the same as the new release and should not be considered a different product.

A student-friendly style, over 100 illustrations, and numerous exercises are brought together in this textbook for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in physics and mathematics. Lewis Ryder develops the theory of general relativity in detail. Covering the core topics of black holes, gravitational radiation, and cosmology, he...
