This comprehensive and self-contained account of the extrinsic
geometry of algebraic curves applies the theory of linear series to
a number of classical topics, including the geometry of the Reimann
theta divisor, as well as to contemporary research.

This volume contains most of the papers presented at EUCOMES
2008, the Second European Conference on Mechanism Science.
The contributions have been grouped in sessions on Theoretical
and Computational Kinematics, History of Mechanism Science,
Design Algorithms, Mechanism Designs, Mechanical Transmissions,
Gearing Systems, Manipulators, Linkages, Mechanics of Robots,
Experimental Mechanics, Dynamics of Multibody Systems, Industrial... more...

This practical introduction to the techniques needed to produce
high-quality mathematical illustrations is suitable for anyone with
basic knowledge of coordinate geometry. Bill Casselman combines a
completely self-contained step-by-step introduction to the graphics
programming language PostScript with an analysis of the
requirements of good mathematical illustrations. The many small
simple graphics projects can also be used in courses in geometry,... more...

This volume provides a modern introduction to stochastic geometry,
random fields and spatial statistics at a (post)graduate level. It
is focused on asymptotic methods in geometric probability including
weak and strong limit theorems for random spatial structures (point
processes, sets, graphs, fields) with applications to statistics.
Written as a contributed volume of lecture notes, it will be useful
not only for students but also for lecturers and... more...

This book gives an introduction to algebraic functions and
projective curves. It covers a wide range of material by
dispensing with the machinery of algebraic geometry and
proceeding directly via valuation theory to the main results on
function fields. It also develops the theory of singular curves
by studying maps to projective space, including topics such as
Weierstrass points in characteristic p, and the Gorenstein
relations for... more...

This book discusses how to design "good" geometric puzzles:
two-dimensional dissection puzzles, polyhedral dissections, and
burrs. It outlines major categories of geometric puzzles and
provides examples, sometimes going into the history and philosophy
of those examples. The author presents challenges and thoughtful
questions, as well as practical design and woodworking tips to
encourage the reader to build his own puzzles and experiment with
his own... more...

From the reviews: "This book offers a coherent treatment, at
the graduate textbook level, of the field that has come to be known
in the last decade or so as computational geometry. ... ... The
book is well organized and lucidly written; a timely contribution
by two founders of the field. It clearly demonstrates that
computational geometry in the plane is now a fairly well-understood
branch of computer science and mathematics. It also points the way
to... more...

The Białowieża workshops on Geometric Methods in Physics, taking
place in the unique environment of the Białowieża natural forest in
Poland, are among the important meetings in the field. Every year
some 80 to 100 participants both from mathematics and physics join
to discuss new developments and to interchange ideas. The current
volume was produced on the occasion of the XXXI meeting in 2012.
For the first time the workshop was followed by a... more...
