Geometric Methods and Applications: For Computer Science and Engineering (Texts in Applied Mathematics)

Buy

This book is an introduction to the fundamental concepts and tools needed for solving problems of a geometric nature using a computer. It attempts to fill the gap between standard geometry books, which are primarily theoretical, and applied books on computer graphics, computer vision, robotics, or machine learning.

 This book covers the following topics: affine geometry, projective geometry, Euclidean geometry, convex sets, SVD and principal component analysis, manifolds and Lie groups, quadratic optimization, basics of differential geometry, and a glimpse of computational geometry (Voronoi diagrams and Delaunay triangulations). Some practical applications of the concepts presented in this book include computer vision, more specifically contour grouping, motion interpolation, and robot kinematics.

  In this extensively updated second edition, more material on convex sets, Farkas’s lemma, quadratic optimization and the Schur complement have been added. The chapter on SVD has been greatly expanded and now includes a presentation of PCA.

 The book is well illustrated and has chapter summaries and a large number of exercises throughout. It will be of interest to a wide audience including computer scientists, mathematicians, and engineers.

 Reviews of first edition:

"Gallier's book will be a useful source for anyone interested in applications of geometrical methods to solve problems that arise in various branches of engineering. It may help to develop the sophisticated concepts from the more advanced parts of geometry into useful tools for applications." (Mathematical Reviews, 2001)

"...it will be useful as a reference book for postgraduates wishing to find the connection between their current problem and the underlying geometry." (The Australian Mathematical Society, 2001)

Machine Learning in Computer Vision (Computational Imaging and Vision)
Machine Learning in Computer Vision (Computational Imaging and Vision)
The goal of computer vision research is to provide computers with humanlike
perception capabilities so that they can sense the environment, understand
the sensed data, take appropriate actions, and learn from this experience in
order to enhance future performance. The field has evolved from the application
of classical pattern

Control of Robot Manipulators in Joint Space (Advanced Textbooks in Control and Signal Processing)
Robot control is the backbone of robotics, an essential discipline in the maintenance of high quality and productivity in modern industry. The most common method of control for industrial robotic manipulators relies on the measurement and amendment of joint displacement: so-called "joint-space control".

Imaging Beyond the Pinhole Camera (Computational Imaging and Vision)
Imaging Beyond the Pinhole Camera (Computational Imaging and Vision)
The world's first photograph was taken in 1826 using a pinhole camera, known as camera obscura. The camera obscura, the basic projection model of pinhole cameras, was already known in China more than 2500 years ago. Cameras used since this first photograph are basically following the pinhole camera principle. The quality of projected images...

Developing Virtual Reality Applications: Foundations of Effective Design
This book, Developing Virtual Reality Applications: Foundations of Effective Design, has been many years in the making. Our interest in virtual reality came about as an outgrowth of our interest in, and our day-to-day work in scientific visualization. In the early 1990s the state-of-the-art in computer graphics used for scientific visualization was...

Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications (Texts in Computer Science)

Humans perceive the three-dimensional structure of the world with apparent ease. However, despite all of the recent advances in computer vision research, the dream of having a computer interpret an image at the same level as a two-year old remains elusive. Why is computer vision such a challenging problem and what is the current state of the...
