Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling (Mathematics and Visualization)

Buy
Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling are two distinct domains of research, with few interactions up to now, though closely linked. On the one hand, Algebraic Geometry has developed an impressive theory targeting the understanding of geometric objects defined algebraically. On the other hand, Geometric Modeling is using every day, in practical and difficult problems, virtual shapes based on algebraic models. Could these two domains benefit from each other? Recent and interesting developments in this direction are about to convince us to answer yes. In this book, we have collected articles which reinforce, in some way, the natural bridge which exists between these two areas. The confrontation of the different points of view should result in a better analysis of the key problems and related methods to solve them. This was the aim of the workshop entitled Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling, held from September 27 to September 29, 2004, at the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis. This workshop was organized, in the context of the European project GAIA II (IST-2002-35512).

The first group of articles is about Implicitization problems, namely the conversion of a parametric representation of an algebraic variety into an implicit one. This problem is fundamental in Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD), where geometric objects are often given parametrically and some operations like testing if a point is in a variety, intersecting two varieties, determining the singular locus of a variety, is better understandood via implicit representations.

In his contribution, Goldman claims that the main contribution of Algebraic Geometry to Geometric Modeling is insight, not computation, and that we should not confuse concrete theoretical tools given by Algebraic Geometry with efficient computational methods needed by Geometric Modeling.

Practical Guide to Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Technology
Practical Guide to Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Technology

Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (HNBR) is a synthetic polymer that results from the hydrogenation of Nitrile Rubber (NBR). It is widely known for its physical strength and retention of properties after long-term exposure to heat, oil and chemicals. The unique properties attributed to it have resulted in wide adoption of HNBR in...

Quantum Optics (Oxford Graduate Texts)
Quantum optics, i.e. the interaction of individual photons with matter, began with the discoveries of Planck and Einstein, but in recent years, it has expanded beyond pure physics to become an important driving force for technological innovation. This book serves the broader readership growing out of this development by starting with an elementary...

Better Game Characters by Design: A Psychological Approach (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Interactive 3D Technology)
Games are poised for a major evolution, driven by growth in technical sophistication and audience reach. Characters that create powerful social and emotional connections with players throughout the game-play itself (not just in cut scenes) will be essential to next-generation games. However, the principles of sophisticated character design and...
