Editorial Review Product Description Convex and Discrete Geometry is an area of mathematics situated between analysis, geometry and discrete mathematics with numerous relations to other subdisciplines. This book provides a comprehensive overview of major results, methods and ideas of convex and discrete geometry and its applications. Besides being a graduate-level introduction to the field, it is a practical source of information and orientation for convex geometers, and useful to people working in the applied fields. |

Editorial Review Product Description Both classical geometry and modern differential geometry have been active subjects of research throughout the 20th century and lie at the heart of many recent advances in mathematics and physics. The underlying motivating concept for the present book is that it offers readers the elements of a modern geometric culture by means of a whole series of visually appealing unsolved (or recently solved) problems that require the creation of concepts and tools of varying abstraction. Starting with such natural, classical objects as lines, planes, circles, spheres, polygons, polyhedra, curves, surfaces, convex sets, etc., crucial ideas and above all abstract concepts needed for attaining the results are elucidated. These are conceptual notions, each built "above" the preceding and permitting an increase in abstraction, represented metaphorically by Jacob's ladder with its rungs: the 'ladder' in the Old Testament, that angels ascended and descended... In all this, the aim of the book is to demonstrate to readers the unceasingly renewed spirit of geometry and that even so-called "elementary" geometry is very much alive and at the very heart of the work of numerous contemporary mathematicians. It is also shown that there are innumerable paths yet to be explored and concepts to be created. The book is visually rich and inviting, so that readers may open it at random places and find much pleasure throughout according their own intuitions and inclinations. Marcel Berger is the author of numerous successful books on geometry, this book once again is addressed to all students and teachers of mathematics with an affinity for geometry. |
5. Stochastic and Integral Geometry (Probability and Its Applications) by Rolf Schneider, Wolfgang Weil | |

Editorial Review Product Description Stochastic geometry deals with models for random geometric structures. Its early beginnings are found in playful geometric probability questions, and it has vigorously developed during recent decades, when an increasing number of real-world applications in various sciences required solid mathematical foundations. Integral geometry studies geometric mean values with respect to invariant measures and is, therefore, the appropriate tool for the investigation of random geometric structures that exhibit invariance under translations or motions. Stochastic and Integral Geometry provides the mathematically oriented reader with a rigorous and detailed introduction to the basic stationary models used in stochastic geometry – random sets, point processes, random mosaics – and to the integral geometry that is needed for their investigation. The interplay between both disciplines is demonstrated by various fundamental results. A chapter on selected problems about geometric probabilities and an outlook to non-stationary models are included, and much additional information is given in the section notes. |

Editorial Review Product Description One of the results discussed in the book is Ball's theorem, establishing the exact upper bound for the $(n-1)$-dimensional volume of hyperplane sections of the $n$-dimensional unit cube (it is $\sqrt{2}$ for each $n\geq 2$). Another is the Busemann-Petty problem: if $K$ and $L$ are two convex origin-symmetric $n$-dimensional bodies and the $(n-1)$-dimensional volume of each central hyperplane section of $K$ is less than the $(n-1)$-dimensional volume of the corresponding section of $L$, is it true that the $n$-dimensional volume of $K$ is less than the volume of $L$? (The answer is positive for $n\le 4$ and negative for $n>4$.) The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in geometry, harmonic and functional analysis, and probability. Prerequisites for reading this book include basic real, complex, and functional analysis. |

Editorial Review Product Description The field of convex geometry has become a fertile subject of mathematical activity in the past few decades. This exposition, examining in detail those topics in convex geometry that are concerned with Euclidean space, is enriched by numerous examples, illustrations, and exercises, with a good bibliography and index. The theory of intrinsic volumes for convex bodies, along with the Hadwiger characterization theorems, whose proofs are based on beautiful geometric ideas such as the rounding theorems and the Steiner formula, are treated in Part 1. In Part 2 the reader is given a survey on curvature and surface area measures and extensions of the class of convex bodies. Part 3 is devoted to the important class of star bodies and selectors for convex and star bodies, including a presentation of two famous problems of geometric tomography: the Shephard problem and the Busemann–Petty problem. Selected Topics in Convex Geometry requires of the reader only a basic knowledge of geometry, linear algebra, analysis, topology, and measure theory. The book can be used in the classroom setting for graduates courses or seminars in convex geometry, geometric and convex combinatorics, and convex analysis and optimization. Researchers in pure and applied areas will also benefit from the book. |
