Geometry and computing

The intent of this book is to set the modern foundations of the theory of generalized curvature measures. This subject has a long history, beginning with J. Steiner (1850), H. Weyl (1939), H. Federer (1959), P. Wintgen (1982), and continues today with young and brilliant mathematicians. In the last decades, a renewal of interest in mathematics as well as computer science has arisen (finding new applications in computer graphics, medical imaging, computational geometry, visualization …).

4 portance of collision detection extends to several areas like robot motion planning, dynamic simulation, virtual reality applications and it has been extensively studied in robotics, computational geometry, and computer graphics for more than a decade 3, 4, 11, 13, 17, 41, 43, 45, 51, 53, 63 . Yet, there is no practical, e cient algorithm available yet for general geometric models to perform collision detection in real time. Recently, Pentland has listed collision detection as one of the major bottlenecks towards real time virtual environment simulations 69 .

Orthographic projectionsthat is, plans and sectionsare one of the most valuable representational tools architects have at their disposal. They are an indispensable communication and design device. They have also contributed to a prominent digital fabrication method. With computer modeling, deriving sections is no longer a necessarily twodimensional drawing exercise. In fact, it is no longer an exercise in projection at all but a process of taking cuts through a formed threedimensional object.

This book is a survey of abstract algebra with emphasis on algebra tinh.Do is online for students in mathematics, computer science, and physical sciences. The rst three or four chapters can stand alone as a one semester course in abstract algebra. However, they are structured to provide the foundation for the program linear algebra. Chapter 2 is the most di cult part of the book for group written in additive notation and multiplication, and the concept of coset is confusing at rst. Chapter 2 After the book was much easier as you go along....

This book, based on intensive research I have conducted since the late 1970s, is my attempt to cover in one monograph the modern theory of surface generation with a focus on kinematic geometry of surfacemachining on amultiaxis numerical control (NC) machine. Although the orientation of this book is toward computeraided design (CAD) and computeraidedmanufacturing (CAM), it is also useful for solving problems that relate to the generation of surfaces on machine tools of conventional design (for example, gear generators, and so forth)....

In order to achieve good reflectance performance through environmental and stress conditions seen in service, fiberoptic connectors must achieve and maintain physical contact between fiber cores. It is a given in the industry that ferrule endface geometry is critical to maintaining fiber core physical contact. The three critical attributes of endface geometry for physical contact (PC) connectors are radius of curvature, fiber protrusion/ recession, and apex offset. In angled physical contact (APC) connectors, the equivalent of apex offset is often referred to as dome offset....

Although much of its discovery process is descriptive and qualitative, chemistry is fundamentally a quantitative science. It serves a wide range of human needs, activities, and concerns. The mathematical sciences provide the language for quantitative science, and this language is growing in many directions as computational science in general continues its rapid expansion. A timely opportunity now exists to strengthen and increase the beneficial impacts of chemistry by enhancing the interaction between chemistry and the mathematical sciences.

Possibly nothing in Kant’s philosophy has left more room for confusion and debate than his writings on the pure intuition of space. In no small part this is due to Kant’s aggravatingly brief discussion of what was nothing less than a radical and revolutionary idea in philosophy. But in part it is also due to a pervasive tendency to admix the idea of space with that of geometry, and to a seeming obviousness of what is meant by the term “space.” For most of us, “space” taken as an object means “physical space,” and there would seem to...

What is computational physics? Here, we take it to mean techniques for simulating continuous physical systems on computers. Since mathematical physics expresses these systems as partial differential equations, an equivalent statement is that computational physics involves solving systems of partial differential equations on a computer. This book is meant to provide an introduction to computational physics to students in plasma physics and related disciplines. We present most of the basic concepts needed for numerical solution of partial differential equations.
