By Alexander I. Bobenko (eds.)

This is without doubt one of the first books on a newly rising box of discrete differential geometry and a very good solution to entry this interesting region. It surveys the interesting connections among discrete versions in differential geometry and intricate research, integrable platforms and functions in laptop graphics.

The authors take a more in-depth examine discrete versions in differential

geometry and dynamical structures. Their curves are polygonal, surfaces

are made of triangles and quadrilaterals, and time is discrete.

Nevertheless, the variation among the corresponding soft curves,

surfaces and classical dynamical platforms with non-stop time can hardly ever be noticeable. this can be the paradigm of structure-preserving discretizations. present advances during this box are motivated to a wide quantity by means of its relevance for special effects and mathematical physics. This e-book is written by means of experts operating jointly on a typical learn venture. it's approximately differential geometry and dynamical platforms, soft and discrete theories, and on natural arithmetic and its sensible functions. The interplay of those features is established via concrete examples, together with discrete conformal mappings, discrete complicated research, discrete curvatures and unique surfaces, discrete integrable structures, conformal texture mappings in special effects, and free-form architecture.

This richly illustrated publication will persuade readers that this new department of arithmetic is either attractive and helpful. it's going to entice graduate scholars and researchers in differential geometry, advanced research, mathematical physics, numerical tools, discrete geometry, in addition to special effects and geometry processing.

From the reports: ". .. Federer's well timed and gorgeous publication certainly fills the necessity for a accomplished treatise on geometric degree thought, and his specific exposition leads from the principles of the idea to the newest discoveries. . .. the writer writes with a particular sort that is either ordinary and powerfully competitively priced in treating a classy topic.

Smooth Manifolds and Observables

This article serves as an creation to the idea of gentle manifolds, yet it really is fairly in contrast to the other textual content at the topic. The vintage method of manifold thought is heavy at the (point-set) topology and research; this one is heavy at the algebra. during this e-book, the writer exhibits manifold (in the normal feel) is totally characterised by way of its ring of tender features.

Differentialgeometrie und homogene Räume

Das Ziel dieses Buches ist, im Umfang einer zweisemestrigen Vorlesung die wichtigsten Grundlagen der Riemannschen Geometrie mit allen notwendigen Zwischenresultaten bereitzustellen und die zentrale Beispielklasse der homogenen Räume ausführlich darzustellen. Homogene Räume sind Riemannsche Mannigfaltigkeiten, deren Isometriegruppe transitiv auf ihnen operiert.
