Mathematics for Computer Graphics, 9781846280344 (1846280346), Springer, 2005
Baffled by maths? Then don't give up hope. John Vince will show you how to understand many of the mathematical ideas used in computer animation, virtual reality, CAD, and other areas of computer graphics. In thirteen chapters you will rediscover - and hopefully discover for the first time a new way of understanding - the mathematical techniques required to solve problems and design computer programs for computer graphic applications. Each chapter explores a specific mathematical topic and takes you forward into more advanced areas until you are able to understand 3D curves and surface patches, and solve problems using vectors. After reading the book, you should be able to refer to more challenging books with confidence and develop a greater insight into the design of computer graphics software. Get to grips with mathematics fast - Numbers, Algebra, Trigonometry, Coordinate geometry, Transforms, Vectors, Curves and surfaces, Barycentric coordinates, Analytic geometry. The book you will read once, and refer to over and over again!

Mathematics is a beautiful subject. Its symbols, notation and abstract structures permit us to define, manipulate and resolve extremely complex problems. The symbols by themselves, however, are meaningless – they are nothing more than a calligraphic representation of a mental idea. If one does not understand such symbols, then the encoded idea remains a secret.

Silk: Trade and Exchange along the Silk Roads between Rome and China in Antiquity (Ancient Textiles Series)

"Already in Greek and Roman antiquity a vibrant series of exchange relationships existed between the Mediterranean regions and China, including the Indian subcontinents along well-defined routes we call the Silk Roads. Among the many goods that found their way from East to West and vice versa were glass, wine, spices, metals like iron,...

Logic Synthesis for Compositional Microprogram Control Units (Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering)
Logic Synthesis for Compositional Microprogram Control Units (Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering)
The control unit is one of the most important parts of any digital system. As a rule, control units have an irregular structure, which makes the processing of their logic circuits design very sophisticated. One possible way to optimise such characteristics as the size or performance of control units is to adapt their structures to the particular...
