an excellent treatment Assuming proficiency in programming, as further pre-requisite I would suggest an undergraduate course in abstract algebra (or equivalent mathematical maturity) for maximum benefit. An excellent collection of algorithms, proofs, and advanced introductory material, written in a (comparatively) breezy style.

Editorial Review Product Description Until recently, all of the interactions between objects in virtual 3D worlds have been based on calculations performed using linear algebra. Linear algebra relies heavily on coordinates, however, which can make many geometric programming tasks very specific and complex-often a lot of effort is required to bring about even modest performance enhancements. Although linear algebra is an efficient way to specify low-level computations, it is not a suitable high-level language for geometric programming.

Editorial Review Product Description The viewpoint is that mathematical expressions, represented by expression trees, are the data objects of computer algebra programs, and by using a few primitive operations that analyze and construct expressions, we can implement many elementary operations from algebra, trigonometry, calculus, and differential equations. With a minimum of prerequisites, this book is accessible and useful to students of mathematics, computer science, and other technical fields. The book contains a CD with the full, searchable text and implementations of all algorithms in Maple, Mathematica, and MuPad programming languages. Customer Reviews (2)

Editorial Review Product Description Geometric algebra (a Clifford Algebra) has been applied to different branches of physics for a long time but is now being adopted by the computer graphics community and is providing exciting new ways of solving 3D geometric problems. The author tackles this complex subject with inimitable style, and provides an accessible and very readable introduction. The book is filled with lots of clear examples and is very well illustrated. Introductory chapters look at algebraic axioms, vector algebra and geometric conventions and the book closes with a chapter on how the algebra is applied to computer graphics. Customer Reviews (1)

Editorial Review Product Description Customer Reviews (1)
Comprehensive and accessible overview of the field. The method used is that of the Algebra of Communicating Processes [1,2,3], abbreviated ACP, and often just called "process algebra" by authors from the ACP school. Process algebra (a term I will strictly use here in the narrow sense of the ACP method) is a formalism that emphasizes the definition of and calculation with processes by means of equational logic. No fixed process model is imposed, and indeed many models have been proposed and studied. In practice however, mostly a bisimulation model based on structural operational semantics is used. The authors start out with a general introduction to untimed process algebra, and then gradually incorporate timing aspects. In particular, two directions of research are methodically explored. Firstly, the choice of the time domain, where they examine both a discrete domain and a dense domain (basically modeling moments in time as natural numbers, and as real numbers). Secondly, the distinction between relative and absolute timing is made, the difference being whether references to time are specified with respect to an "absolute clock", or with respect to the amount of time that has passed since the last event within the process. All resulting four possibilities (discrete-relative, discrete-absolute, dense-relative, and dense-absolute) are studied in detail in four corresponding chapters, and in a very uniform manner indeed, which enables the reader to compare all four directions closely, and understand the issues involved. This is all the more encouraged by the authors, who go to great lengths to show the relations between the various theories. Finally, the authors conclude with two chapters that show how the framework set out in the previous chapters can be extended with other well-known concepts from process algebra, like the silent step or the state operator. Throughout the book, the authors give a large number of example specifications and (partial) verifications, many of them non-trivial. Even while these examples are impressive, I must note that none of them are "real life" in the sense that our colleagues in industry would be impressed with them. I suppose such examples would not have fit the scope of the work, so it is only minor criticism, but I would love to see a companion volume on the applications of timed process algebra, in a framework of comparable maturity. A more serious issue for me was the complete lack of references to or comparison with related work outside the ACP school (for example to the timed extensions of CCS and CSP). Especially where the tradeoffs between the many options possible are discussed, one becomes very curious on how the corresponding issues in related work have been handled. I was annoyed by this, and feel it is a painful omission, equally so whether one views this work as a textbook or as a monograph. Although almost everything presented in their book has been published before, the authors deserve significant credit for bringing together the most successful concepts in timed process algebra within a coherent and uniform framework. Whereas isolated publications have sometimes suffered from subtle and unexplained differences in definitions and approaches with regard to each other, this book succeeds in painting the bigger picture. In my opinion this is a clear sign that timed process algebra has grown up to be a mature theory, existing not only in the strict domain of academic research, but also ready for classroom teaching, and hopefully, industrial application. Looking upon the work as a whole, I am pleasantly surprised by the combination of academic depth on the one hand, and the great number of examples and exercises given on the other. This makes it very suitable as a classroom or self-study textbook, for advanced undergraduate students, or for researchers in need of an introduction to timed process algebra. These textbook qualities are augmented by a large appendix containing a mathematical background primer. It would be incorrect however to view this work as a textbook only; it is just as much a monograph of timed process algebra, giving a comprehensive and accessible overview of the field.

Editorial Review Product Description Modern computer algebra systems are revolutionizing the teaching and learning of mathematically intensive subjects in science and engineering, enabling students to explore increasingly complex and computationally intensive models that provide analytic solutions, animated numerical solutions, and complex two- and three-dimensional graphic displays. This self-contained text benefits from a spiral structure that regularly revisits the general topics of graphics, symbolic computation, and numerical simulation with increasing intricacy at each turn. The text is built around a large number of computer algebra worksheets or "recipes" that have been designed using MAPLE to provide tools for problem solving and to stimulate critical thinking. No prior knowledge of MAPLE is assumed. All relevant commands are introduced on a need-to-know basis and are indexed for easy reference. Each recipe is associated with a scientific model or method and an interesting or amusing story designed to both entertain and enhance concept comprehension and retention. All recipes are included on the CD-ROM enclosed with the book. Aimed at third- and fourth-year undergraduates in science and engineering, the text contains numerous examples in disciplines that will challenge students progressing in mathematics, physics, engineering, game theory, and physical chemistry. Computer Algebra Recipes: An Advanced Guide to Mathematical Modeling can serve as an effective computational science text, with a set of problems following each section of recipes to enable readers to apply and confirm their understanding. The book may also be used as a reference, for self-study, or as the basis of an on-line course. Customer Reviews (2)
A good overall text
cd format mac incompatibility fixed (for me) ...These authors are masters. Each author, I find from surfing on the web, has a computer learning lab. The early reading introduces the fact that without the constraints of paper, undergraduates can learn to compose solutions to more realistic problems, eg. golf balls do not go on parabolas but do depend on your irons and crosswinds. My last read text by the same authors, "Nonlinear Physics with Maple" edition 1 was a really inspiring book full of exercises. A master of solitons, Ablowitz, wrote (with) "Complex Variables" available at [Amazon.com]. Riemann Hilbert problems chapter 7 ought to further flesh out "Nonlinear Physics with Maple" last chapter concerning inverse scattering method in a to me readable manner. ... Read more |
