   Discrete geodesic nets for modeling developable surfaces
Rabinovich M., Hoffmann T., Sorkine-Hornung O.  ACM Transactions on Graphics 37(2): 1-17, 2018. Type: Article

Developable surfaces are those that can be flattened to the plane isometrically, that is, without stretching or tearing. They play an important role in manufacturing and architecture, for example, curved glass can be constructed by rolling and ben...

  Euclidean distance geometry: an introduction
Liberti L., Lavor C.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 133 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319607-91-7)

If someone has a set of objects whose positions are known, calculating the distances between them is not a problem. However, the inverse problem is difficult, that is, given a set of distances between objects, determine their positions. Unfortunat...

  Mathematics for computer graphics (5th ed.)
Vince J.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 505 pp. Type: Book (978-1-447173-34-2), Reviews: (2 of 2)

If there is a student guide for understanding the mathematics for computer science, this is it. Mathematics for computer graphics is a gem of a book for this purpose. The readers not only get knowledge of prerequisites and depth, but also p...

  An introduction to distance geometry applied to molecular geometry
Lavor C., Liberti L., Lodwick W., da Costa T.,  Springer Publishing Company, Incorporated, New York, NY, 2017. 54 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319571-82-9)

The most common way of determining the structures of molecules in a solution is nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). The signals measured are caused by the flipping of the spins of paramagnetic nuclei in a magnetic field. The strengths of the signals...

  Mathematics for computer graphics (5th ed.)
Vince J.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 505 pp. Type: Book (978-1-447173-34-2), Reviews: (1 of 2)

A broad range of mathematical topics is covered in the 18 chapters of this book. The first chapter gives an overview of what this book is about. The next five chapters introduce number sets, algebra, trigonometry, coordinate systems, and determina...

  Introduction to morphogenetic computing
Resconi G., Xu X., Xu G.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 172 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319576-14-5)

Morphogenetic computing is a fundamentally new approach to computing that attempts to add consistency and stability in uncertain situations. Valued logic or machine learning may be applied to reason in uncertain situations. However, these approach...

  Ontology-based procedural modelling of traversable buildings composed by arbitrary shapes
Adão T., Magalhães L., Peres E.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2016. 122 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319423-71-5)

This monograph describes a method for generating models of virtual buildings based on an approach that combines a virtual building ontology with procedural modeling techniques. The main features of the method are the abilities to model buildings o...

  Representing 3-manifolds by filling Dehn surfaces
Vigara R., Lozano-Rojo A.,  World Scientific Publishing Co, Inc., River Edge, NJ, 2016. 350 pp. Type: Book

In many applications we encounter manifolds, that is, topological spaces that are locally homeomorphic to the usual Euclidean space. Probably the most well-known example is general relativity, according to which our space-time is a manifold (excep...

  Digital and discrete geometry: theory and algorithms
Chen L.,  Springer Publishing Company, Incorporated, New York, NY, 2014. 322 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319120-98-0)

The discipline of digital geometry studies the geometric properties of models of objects that are conceptually defined in Euclidean space and discretized onto integer grid subsets of the space. While digital geometry is generally considered a bran...
