**Geometric Folding Algorithms: Linkages, Origami, Polyhedra**
How can linkages, pieces of paper, and polyhedra be folded? The authors present hundreds of results and over 60 unsolved 'open problems' in this comprehensive look at the mathematics of folding, with an emphasis on algorithmic or computational aspects. Folding and unfolding problems have been implicit since Albrecht Dürer in the... | | **Economics: Principles and Applications**
Because issues of policy and real applications are critical to the principles of economics course, acclaimed economists Hall and Lieberman have made the latest edition of their cutting-edge text as current as today's headlines, giving students a real-world, up-to-the-minute overview that presents economics as a unified discipline. Taking... | | **Accelerated C++: Practical Programming by Example**
We assume that you want to learn quickly how to write useful C++ programs. Therefore, we start by explaining the most useful parts of C++. This strategy may seem obvious when we put it that way, but it has the radical implication that we do not begin by teaching C, even though C++ builds on C. Instead, we use high-level data structures from... |
