A Short Course in Computational Geometry and Topology by Herbert Edelsbrunner

By Herbert Edelsbrunner

This monograph provides a quick direction in computational geometry and topology. within the first half the e-book covers Voronoi diagrams and Delaunay triangulations, then it provides the speculation of alpha complexes which play an important function in biology. The valuable a part of the booklet is the homology thought and their computation, together with the idea of endurance that's critical for purposes, e.g. form reconstruction. the objective viewers contains researchers and practitioners in arithmetic, biology, neuroscience and computing device technology, however the booklet can also be worthwhile to graduate scholars of those fields.
