Modeling of Curves and Surfaces with MATLAB®

Buy

This text on geometry modeling is devoted to a number of central geometrical topics— graphs of functions, transformations, (non-)Euclidean geometries, curves and surfaces— and presents some elementary methods for analytical modeling and visualization of them.

In 1872 F. Klein proposed his Erlangen Programme in which he suggested that different geometries can be studied by the properties of the groups of transformations acting on the geometry. The following geometries are represented in this way: Euclidean, affine, projective, inversive, spherical, and hyperbolic.

B. Riemann’s (1868) idea was to represent geometries by ametric (differential) form in a curvilinear coordinate system. The distance between points is measured as the minimum length of curves (calculated using the metric form!) joining them. The intrinsic geometry of a surface in space and Euclidean, spherical, and hyperbolic geometries are represented in this way.

Starting Strength (2nd edition)
Many things have happened since I started the writing of Starting Strength: A Simple and Practical Guide for Coaching Beginners in 2004. As a result of its publication I have had the opportunity to meet and learn from many new people. It is my sincerest hope that the additions to this book that are the direct result of their input...

Hillbilly: A Cultural History of an American Icon
Hillbilly: A Cultural History of an American Icon
    Harkins, assistant professor of history at Western Kentucky University, means to examine the "cultural and ideological construct `the hillbilly'... rather than the actual people of the southern mountains." To this end, he examines some obscure early American printed material, Paul Webb's Esquire magazine cartoons from...
