H. S. M. Coxeter's Non-Euclidean Geometry (6th Edition) PDF

By H. S. M. Coxeter

ISBN-10: 0883855224

ISBN-13: 9780883855225

It is a reissue of Professor Coxeter's vintage textual content on non-Euclidean geometry. It starts off with a ancient introductory bankruptcy, after which devotes 3 chapters to surveying actual projective geometry, and 3 to elliptic geometry. After this the Euclidean and hyperbolic geometries are equipped up axiomatically as designated situations of a extra common 'descriptive geometry'. this is often crucial studying for anyone with an curiosity in geometry.

Download e-book for kindle: Guide to Computational Geometry Processing: Foundations, by Jakob Andreas Bærentzen, Jens Gravesen, François Anton,

This booklet stories the algorithms for processing geometric facts, with a realistic specialize in vital ideas no longer lined through conventional classes on machine imaginative and prescient and special effects. positive factors: offers an outline of the underlying mathematical conception, overlaying vector areas, metric area, affine areas, differential geometry, and finite distinction tools for derivatives and differential equations; experiences geometry representations, together with polygonal meshes, splines, and subdivision surfaces; examines suggestions for computing curvature from polygonal meshes; describes algorithms for mesh smoothing, mesh parametrization, and mesh optimization and simplification; discusses element position databases and convex hulls of element units; investigates the reconstruction of triangle meshes from element clouds, together with tools for registration of aspect clouds and floor reconstruction; presents extra fabric at a supplementary site; contains self-study workouts through the textual content.
