## Book of Curves

**Author**: E. H. Lockwood**Publisher:**Cambridge University Press**ISBN:**9780511569340**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**198**View:**1823

This book opens up an important field of mathematics at an elementary level, one in which the element of aesthetic pleasure, both in the shapes of the curves and in their mathematical relationships, is dominant. This book describes methods of drawing plane curves, beginning with conic sections (parabola, ellipse and hyperbola), and going on to cycloidal curves, spirals, glissettes, pedal curves, strophoids and so on. In general, 'envelope methods' are used. There are twenty-five full-page plates and over ninety smaller diagrams in the text. The book can be used in schools, but will also be a reference for draughtsmen and mechanical engineers. As a text on advanced plane geometry it should appeal to pure mathematicians with an interest in geometry, and to students for whom Euclidean geometry is not a principal study.

## Differential Geometry

**Author**: J. J. Stoker**Publisher:**John Wiley & Sons**ISBN:**9780471504030**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**432**View:**5100

This classic work is now available in an unabridged paperback edition. Stoker makes this fertile branch of mathematics accessible to the nonspecialist by the use of three different notations: vector algebra and calculus, tensor calculus, and the notation devised by Cartan, which employs invariant differential forms as elements in an algebra due to Grassman, combined with an operation called exterior differentiation. Assumed are a passing acquaintance with linear algebra and the basic elements of analysis.

## Numerical Methods of Curve Fitting

**Author**: P. G. Guest,Philip George Guest**Publisher:**Cambridge University Press**ISBN:**1107646952**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**438**View:**3703

First published in 1961, this book provides information on the methods of treating series of observations, the field covered embraces portions of both statistics and numerical analysis. Originally intended as an introduction to the topic aimed at students and graduates in physics, the types of observation discussed reflect the standard routine work of the time in the physical sciences. The text partly reflects an aim to offer a better balance between theory and practice, reversing the tendency of books on numerical analysis to omit numerical examples illustrating the applications of the methods. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the theoretical development of its field.

## Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces

**Author**: Thomas F. Banchoff,Stephen T. Lovett**Publisher:**CRC Press**ISBN:**1568814569**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**352**View:**7654

Students and professors of an undergraduate course in differential geometry will appreciate the clear exposition and comprehensive exercises in this book that focuses on the geometric properties of curves and surfaces, one- and two-dimensional objects in Euclidean space. The problems generally relate to questions of local properties (the properties observed at a point on the curve or surface) or global properties (the properties of the object as a whole). Some of the more interesting theorems explore relationships between local and global properties. A special feature is the availability of accompanying online interactive java applets coordinated with each section. The applets allow students to investigate and manipulate curves and surfaces to develop intuition and to help analyze geometric phenomena.

## Practical Handbook of Curve Design and Generation

**Author**: David H. von Seggern**Publisher:**CRC Press**ISBN:**9780849389160**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**288**View:**4765

Computers are now being used virtually everywhere in arts, drafting, and design to generate curves and surfaces ranging from the elementary to the intricate. Practical Handbook of Curve Design and Generation is a ready reference that presents the basic mathematics of curves in a complete, clear manner that enables you to apply the material to your own work with minimum effort. By knowing how curves are mathematically generated and how their shape is controlled, you can more fully exploit available computer tools, modify these tools themselves, and provide input for others to modify them. It will also help you to identify mathematical equations required to produce specific curves. The book does not require a heavy mathematical background-if you understand elementary algebra and trigonometry, you can fully apply the material presented. Essential mathematical concepts are repeated in the book to reinforce your knowledge of those topics. Featuring some 300 graphic examples, the book is organized so that early chapters cover fundamental polynomial, trigonometric, and exponential forms. The mathematical transformation of curves is then treated in order to give you a general approach for modifying known curves. Later chapters introduce complex curves that can be composed from the building blocks presented in earlier chapters. The final chapters cover interesting ideas in space curves and in surfaces.

## Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces

**Author**: Kristopher Tapp**Publisher:**Springer**ISBN:**3319397990**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**366**View:**8880

This is a textbook on differential geometry well-suited to a variety of courses on this topic. For readers seeking an elementary text, the prerequisites are minimal and include plenty of examples and intermediate steps within proofs, while providing an invitation to more excursive applications and advanced topics. For readers bound for graduate school in math or physics, this is a clear, concise, rigorous development of the topic including the deep global theorems. For the benefit of all readers, the author employs various techniques to render the difficult abstract ideas herein more understandable and engaging. Over 300 color illustrations bring the mathematics to life, instantly clarifying concepts in ways that grayscale could not. Green-boxed definitions and purple-boxed theorems help to visually organize the mathematical content. Color is even used within the text to highlight logical relationships. Applications abound! The study of conformal and equiareal functions is grounded in its application to cartography. Evolutes, involutes and cycloids are introduced through Christiaan Huygens' fascinating story: in attempting to solve the famous longitude problem with a mathematically-improved pendulum clock, he invented mathematics that would later be applied to optics and gears. Clairaut’s Theorem is presented as a conservation law for angular momentum. Green’s Theorem makes possible a drafting tool called a planimeter. Foucault’s Pendulum helps one visualize a parallel vector field along a latitude of the earth. Even better, a south-pointing chariot helps one visualize a parallel vector field along any curve in any surface. In truth, the most profound application of differential geometry is to modern physics, which is beyond the scope of this book. The GPS in any car wouldn’t work without general relativity, formalized through the language of differential geometry. Throughout this book, applications, metaphors and visualizations are tools that motivate and clarify the rigorous mathematical content, but never replace it.
