Computational Geometry: Algorithms and Applications

by

Computational Geometry: Algorithms and Applications Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This introduction to computational geometry focuses on algorithms. Motivation is provided from the application areas as all techniques are related to particular applications in robotics, graphics, CAD/CAM, and geographic information systems. Modern insights in computational geometry are used to provide solutions that are both efficient and easy to understand and implement.
