By Herbert Edelsbrunner

This monograph offers a brief path in computational geometry and topology. within the first half the publication covers Voronoi diagrams and Delaunay triangulations, then it provides the idea of alpha complexes which play a vital function in biology. The significant a part of the publication is the homology thought and their computation, together with the idea of patience that's imperative for purposes, e.g. form reconstruction. the objective viewers contains researchers and practitioners in arithmetic, biology, neuroscience and machine technological know-how, however the ebook can also be important to graduate scholars of those fields.

The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)

The elemental theorem of algebra states that any complicated polynomial should have a posh root. This booklet examines 3 pairs of proofs of the concept from 3 diversified components of arithmetic: summary algebra, advanced research and topology. the 1st evidence in each one pair within reason user-friendly and relies in simple terms on what can be thought of straight forward arithmetic.

Introduction to Differential Geometry for Engineers (Dover Civil and Mechanical Engineering)

This impressive advisor offers vital mathematical instruments for various engineering purposes, supplying engineers the elemental strategies and terminology of recent worldwide differential geometry. compatible for self sustaining examine in addition to a supplementary textual content for complex undergraduate and graduate classes, this quantity additionally constitutes a precious reference for keep an eye on, structures, aeronautical, electric, and mechanical engineers.

Worlds Out of Nothing: A Course in the History of Geometry in the 19th Century (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series)

According to the newest ancient learn, Worlds Out of not anything is the 1st e-book to supply a direction at the background of geometry within the nineteenth century. issues coated within the first a part of the ebook are projective geometry, in particular the concept that of duality, and non-Euclidean geometry. The ebook then strikes directly to the learn of the singular issues of algebraic curves (Plücker’s equations) and their function in resolving a paradox within the concept of duality; to Riemann’s paintings on differential geometry; and to Beltrami’s position in effectively setting up non-Euclidean geometry as a rigorous mathematical topic.

Perlen der Mathematik: 20 geometrische Figuren als Ausgangspunkte für mathematische Erkundungsreisen (German Edition)

Dieses Buch handelt von 20 geometrischen Figuren (Icons), die eine wichtige Rolle bei der Veranschaulichung mathematischer Beweise spielen. Alsina und Nelsen untersuchen die Mathematik, die hinter diesen Figuren steckt und die sich aus ihnen ableiten lässt. Jedem in diesem Buch behandelten Icons ist ein eigenes Kapitel gewidmet, in dem sein Alltagsbezug, seine wesentlichen mathematischen Eigenschaften sowie seine Bedeutung für visuelle Beweise vieler mathematischer Sätze betont werden.
