Geometry of Curves and Surfaces with MAPLE by Vladimir Rovenski
English | PDF | 2000 | 310 Pages | ISBN : 0817640746 | 27.1 MB
This concise text on geometry with computer modeling presents some elementary methods for analytical modeling and visualization of curves and surfaces. The author systematically examines such powerful tools as 2-D and 3-D animation of geometric images, transformations, shadows, and colors, and then further studies more complex problems in differential geometry. Well-illustrated with more than 350 figures–-reproducible using Maple programs in the book–-the work is devoted to three main areas: curves, surfaces, and polyhedra.
