Editorial Review Product Description John Vince explains a wide range of mathematical techniques and problem-solving strategies associated with computer games, computer animation, virtual reality, CAD, and other areas of computer graphics. Covering all the mathematical techniques required to resolve geometric problems and design computer programs for computer graphic applications, each chapter explores a specific mathematical topic prior to moving forward into the more advanced areas of matrix transforms, 3D curves and surface patches. Problem-solving techniques using vector analysis and geometric algebra are also discussed. All the key areas are covered including: Numbers, Algebra, Trigonometry, Coordinate geometry, Transforms, Vectors, Curves and surfaces, Barycentric coordinates, Analytic geometry. Plus – and unusually in a student textbook – a chapter on geometric algebra is included. Customer Reviews (2)

Editorial Review Product Description University studies in computing require the ability to pass from a concrete problem to an abstract representation, reason with the abstract structure, and return with useful solutions to the specific situation. The tools for developing these skills are in part qualitative – concepts such as set, relation, function, and structures such as trees and well-founded orders. They are also in part quantitative – notably elementary combinatorics and finite probability. Recurring in all of these are instruments of proof, both purely logical ones (such as proof by contradiction) and mathematical (the various forms of induction). Features: • Explains the basic mathematical tools required by students as they set out in their studies of Computer or Information Science • Explores the interplay between qualitative thinking and calculation • Teaches the material as a language for thinking, as much as knowledge to be acquired • Uses an intuitive approach with a focus on examples for all general concepts • Provides numerous exercises, solutions and proofs to deepen and test the reader’s understanding • Includes highlight boxes that raise common queries and clear away confusions • Tandems with additional electronic resources including slides on author's website http://david.c.makinson.googlepages.com This easy-to-follow text allows readers to carry out their computing studies with a clear understanding of the basic finite mathematics and logic that they will need. Written explicitly for undergraduates, it requires only a minimal mathematical background and is ideal for self-study as well as classroom use. Customer Reviews (1)

Editorial Review Product Description Discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science are closely linked research areas with strong impacts on applications and various other scientific disciplines. Both fields deeply cross fertilize each other. One of the persons who particularly contributed to building bridges between these and many other areas is László Lovász, a scholar whose outstanding scientific work has defined and shaped many research directions in the last 40 years. A number of friends and colleagues, all top authorities in their fields of expertise and all invited plenary speakers at one of two conferences in August 2008 in Hungary, both celebrating Lovász’s 60^{th} birthday, have contributed their latest research papers to this volume. This collection of articles offers an excellent view on the state of combinatorics and related topics and will be of interest for experienced specialists as well as young researchers. |

Great as preparation for automated reasoning, not so hot otherwise
A logician from holland
gives basics for automated reasoning I recommendthis book for anyone who is just beginning to learn about automatedreasoning. The one suggestion that I have to anyone reading this book isto review your abstract algebrea and set theory. Although this books doesintroduce and cover abstract algebra basics, anohter reference is useful.As for set theory, try Schaum's Outline on Set Theory as an intro or arefresher. ... Read more |

Great refresher It's important to point out that this isn't really the text to learn math from; however, it's a great little refresher that's to the point. So if you're rusty, get this book... if this is all new to you, I'd look into more indepth books.
Terrific Book!
Concise, tight mathematics reference. This book covers a lot of ground in relatively few pages, making it a tight read.It moves through Algebra, Trig, and Geometry, along the way covering such topics as 2D and 3D transforms, perspective, and Beziers.Most of the topics in the book are explained in sufficient detail in a small amount of space.The author makes great and liberal use of diagrams and pictures, which I find particularly helpful to understanding the material since math isn't one of my strong points. There are also straightforward examples that demonstrate the mathematical principles, although there is usually only one or two examples per topic.This can be difficult if, like me, you have problems "getting it" without lots of examples to chew on. As a software engineer, I enjoy figuring out how things work.And in that respect, this book is great.I have some experience dabbling in OpenGL, and I've read several other computer graphics texts that were laden with code examples but lacking in adequate explanations of the math being used.I have also read basic math books that were not geared towards computer programming topics, which made application and transfer of the mathematical threory difficult.This book filled the gap for me, taking me from thinking things like "Hey, look what I can do with OpenGL" to "Hey, I know how OpenGL is doing that!!"Well, maybe I don't know *exactly* how OpenGL works behind the scenes, but because of this book I have a much better understanding of basic computer graphics. Highly recommended, especially if you don't have a strong math or computer science background. ... Read more |

Editorial Review Product Description The two-volume textbook Comprehensive Mathematics for Computer Scientists, of which this is the first volume, is a self-contained comprehensive presentation of mathematics including sets, numbers, graphs, algebra, logic, grammars, machines, linear geometry, calculus, ODEs, and special themes such as neural networks, Fourier theory, wavelets, numerical issues, statistics, categories, and manifolds. The concept framework is streamlined but defining and proving virtually everything. The style implicitly follows the spirit of recent topos-oriented theoretical computer science. Despite the theoretical soundness, the material stresses a large number of core computer science subjects, such as, for example, a discussion of floating point arithmetic, Backus-Naur normal forms, L-systems, Chomsky hierarchies, algorithms for data encoding, e.g., the Reed-Solomon code. The numerous course examples are motivated by computer science and bear a generic scientific meaning. For the second edition the entire text has been carefully reread, and many examples have been added, as well as illustrations and explications to statements and proofs which were exposed in a too shorthand style. This makes the book more comfortable to handle for instructors as well as for students. Customer Reviews (2)
