A Short Course in Computational Geometry and Topology by Herbert Edelsbrunner

By Herbert Edelsbrunner

This monograph provides a quick direction in computational geometry and topology. within the first half the e-book covers Voronoi diagrams and Delaunay triangulations, then it provides the speculation of alpha complexes which play a vital function in biology. The relevant a part of the booklet is the homology idea and their computation, together with the idea of patience that is imperative for functions, e.g. form reconstruction. the objective viewers contains researchers and practitioners in arithmetic, biology, neuroscience and laptop technological know-how, however the booklet can also be important to graduate scholars of those fields.

General Investigations of Curved Surfaces: Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Peter Pesic (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Gauss's conception of surfaces is one of the only mathematical achievements encouraged by way of rules that arose in reference to surveys of the outside of the earth. lengthy considered as a masterpiece in content material and shape, this paintings positive aspects one of many author's most unusual contributions to mathematics--the discovery that Gauss termed the "Theorema Egregium.

The Local Structure of Algebraic K-Theory: 18 (Algebra and Applications)

Algebraic K-theory encodes vital invariants for a number of mathematical disciplines, spanning from geometric topology and sensible research to quantity conception and algebraic geometry. As is often encountered, this robust mathematical item is particularly tough to calculate. except Quillen's calculations of finite fields and Suslin's calculation of algebraically closed fields, few entire calculations have been on hand sooner than the invention of homological invariants provided by means of motivic cohomology and topological cyclic homology.

Fractal Solutions for Understanding Complex Systems in Earth Sciences (Springer Earth System Sciences)

This e-book offers with fractals in figuring out difficulties encountered in earth technology, and their recommendations. It begins with an research of 2 periods of equipment (homogeneous fractals random types, and homogeneous resource distributions or “one aspect” distributions) extensively subtle within the geophysical neighborhood, in particular for learning capability fields and their comparable resource distributions.
