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
Classical differential geometry is the approach to geometry that takes full
advantage of the introduction of numerical coordinates into a geometric
space. This use of coordinates in geometry was the essential insight of Rene
Descartes that allowed the invention of analytic geometry and paved the way
for modern differential geometry. The basic object in differential geometry
(and differential topology) is the smooth manifold. This is a topological
space on which a sufficiently nice family of coordinate systems or "charts"
Web geometry is devoted to the study of families of foliations which are in general position. We restrict ourselves to the local situation, in the neighborhood of the origin in C2 , with d ≥ 1 complex analytic foliations of curves in general position. We are interested in the geometry of such conﬁgurations, that is, properties of planar d-webs which are invariant with respect to analytic local isomorphisms of C2 . The initiators of the subject are W. Blaschke, G. Thomsen and G. Bol in the 1930’s (cf. [B-B], [B] and for instance [H1]). ...

In 1991, David Gale and Raphael Robinson, building on explorations carried out by Michael Somos in the 1980s, introduced a three-parameter family of rational recurrence relations, each of which (with suitable initial conditions) appeared to give rise to a sequence of integers, even though a priori the recurrence might produce non-integral rational numbers. Throughout the '90s, proofs of integrality were known only for individual special cases. In the early '00s, Sergey Fomin and Andrei Zelevinsky proved Gale and Robinson's integrality conjecture.

Prior to construction of any structural system, an extensive engineering design and analysis process must be undertaken. During this process, many engineering assumptions are routinely used in the application of engineering principles and theories to practice.
