Folding Techniques for Designers: From Sheet to Form
Many designers use folding techniques in their work to make three-dimensional forms from two-dimensional sheets of fabric, cardboard, plastic, metal, and many other materials. This unique book explains the key techniques of folding, such as pleated surfaces, curved folding and crumpling. An elegant, practical handbook, it covers over 70...
Chemical Analysis of Firearms, Ammunition, and Gunshot Residue There are numerous detailed books on firearms available for enthusiasts, the vast majority of the books concentrating on the physical aspects of firearms. Very little has been published on the chemical aspects of firearms and ammunition and what has been published is sparse and fragmented in the literature. One of the reasons for this is that... MATLAB Differential and Integral Calculus
MATLAB is a high-level language and environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or...
Curves and Surfaces for Computer Graphics
Images are all around us. We see them in color and in high resolution. In fact, the
natural images we see with our eyes seem perfectly smooth, with no jagged edges and
no graininess. Computer graphics, on the other hand, deals with images that consist
of small dots, pixels. When we first hear of this feature of computer graphics, we...
Curves and Singularities The object of this book is to introduce to a new generation of students an area of mathematics that has received a tremendous impetus during the last twenty years or so from developments in singularity theory.
The differential geometry of curves, families of curves and surfaces in Euclidean space has fascinated mathematicians and users...
Modeling of Curves and Surfaces with MATLAB®
This text on geometry modeling is devoted to a number of central geometrical topics—
graphs of functions, transformations, (non-)Euclidean geometries, curves and surfaces—
and presents some elementary methods for analytical modeling and visualization
In 1872 F. Klein proposed his Erlangen Programme in...
Implicit Curves and Surfaces: Mathematics, Data Structures and Algorithms
Implicit objects have gained increasing importance in geometric modeling, visualisation, animation, and computer graphics, because their geometric properties provide a good alternative to traditional parametric objects. This book presents the mathematics, computational methods and data structures, as well as the algorithms needed to render...
Astronomy Demystified (Demystified)
This book is for people who want to learn basic astronomy without taking a formal course. It also can serve as a supplemental text in a classroom, tutored, or home-schooling environment. I recommend that you start at the beginning of this book and go straight through.
In this book, we’ll go on a few “mind...
