Volumetric Discrete Geometry

1st Edition

Karoly Bezdek, Zsolt Langi
April 24, 2019

Volume of geometric objects plays an important role in applied and theoretical mathematics. This is particularly true in the relatively new branch of discrete geometry, where volume is often used to find new topics for research. Volumetric Discrete Geometry demonstrates the recent aspects of volume...

Curved-Folding Origami Design

1st Edition

Jun Mitani
March 27, 2019

The origami introduced in this book is based on simple techniques. Some were previously known by origami artists and some were discovered by the author. Curved-Folding Origami Design shows a way to explore new area of origami composed of curved folds. Each technique is introduced in a step-by-step...

Handbook of Conformal Mappings and Applications

1st Edition

Prem K. Kythe
March 04, 2019

The subject of conformal mappings is a major part of geometric function theory that gained prominence after the publication of the Riemann mapping theorem — for every simply connected domain of the extended complex plane there is a univalent and meromorphic function that maps such a domain...

Pencils of Cubics and Algebraic Curves in the Real Projective Plane

1st Edition

Séverine Fiedler - Le Touzé
November 26, 2018

Pencils of Cubics and Algebraic Curves in the Real Projective Plane thoroughly examines the combinatorial configurations of n generic points in RP². Especially how it is the data describing the mutual position of each point with respect to lines and conics passing through others. The first section...

Sturm-Liouville Problems: Theory and Numerical Implementation

1st Edition

Ronald B. Guenther, John W Lee
November 08, 2018

Sturm-Liouville problems arise naturally in solving technical problems in engineering, physics, and more recently in biology and the social sciences. These problems lead to eigenvalue problems for ordinary and partial differential equations. Sturm-Liouville Problems: Theory and Numerical...
