Dieses Buch bietet eine systematische Einführung in dieses neue Arbeitsfeld der automatischen Bildanalyse. Es behandelt sämtliche wichtigen Teilaspekte, beginnend mit der Gewinnung von Tiefenbildern durch passive und aktive Verfahren über die Extraktion charakteristischer Flächenmerkmale und die Segmentierung bis hin zur modellbasierten Objekterkennung. Daneben werden konkrete Anwendungen der Tiefenbildanalyse vorgestellt. Die Didaktik des Buches erlaubt es Forschern und Praktikern, sich selbständig in dieses Gebiet einzuarbeiten. Das teilweise schwer zugängliche Material wurde in einheitlicher Notation und verständlicher Form aufbereitet. Die beschriebenen Verfahren können damit leicht auf dem Computer implementiert werden. Die Literaturhinweise geben einen vollständigen Überblick über die aktuelle Forschung.

Resources for Teaching Discrete Mathematics presents nineteen classroom tested projects complete with student handouts, solutions, and notes to the instructor. Topics range from a first day activity that motivates proofs to applications of discrete mathematics to chemistry, biology, and data storage. Other projects provide: supplementary material on classic topics such as the towers of Hanoi and the Josephus problem, how to use a calculator to explore various course topics, how to employ Cuisenaire rods to examine the Fibonacci numbers and other sequences, and how you can use plastic pipes to create a geodesic dome. The book contains eleven history modules that allow students to explore topics in their original context. Sources range from eleventh century Chinese figures that prompted Leibniz to write on binary arithmetic, to a 1959 article on automata theory. Excerpts include: Pascal's "Treatise on the Arithmetical Triangle," Hamilton's "Account of the Icosian Game," and Cantor's (translated) "Contributions to the Founding of the Theory of Transfinite Numbers." Five articles complete the book. Three address extensions of standard discrete mathematics content: an exploration of historical counting problems with attention to discovering formulas, a discussion of how computers store graphs, and a survey connecting the principle of inclusion-exclusion to Möbius inversion. Finally, there are two articles on pedagogy specifically related to discrete mathematics courses: a summary of adapting a group discovery method to larger classes, and a discussion of using logic in encouraging students to construct proofs.

These essays examine the mathematical techniques used to describe and analyze surfaces in three-dimensisonal Euclidean space. The contributors consider basic mathematical tools such as computational geometry, parametric representation for computer-aided design, classical differential geometry, and differential forms. Other papers consider algorithms for multivariate splines, recursive division techniques, surface intersections, principal surface patches (including cyclide surfaces), N-sided patches, Gaussian curvature and shell structures, and flexible surface structures.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 12th IMA International Conference on the Mathematics of Surfaces, held in Sheffield, UK in September 2007. The 22 revised full papers presented together with 8 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. Among the topics addressed is the applicability of various aspects of mathematics to engineering and computer science, especially in domains such as computer aided design, computer vision, and computer graphics. The papers cover a range of ideas from underlying theoretical tools to industrial uses of surfaces. Research is reported on theoretical aspects of surfaces including topology, parameterization, differential geometry, and conformal geometry, and also more practical topics such as geometric tolerances, computing shape from shading, and medial axes for industrial applications. Other specific areas of interest include subdivision schemes, solutions of differential equations on surfaces, knot insertion, surface segmentation, surface deformation, and surface fitting.

In this delightful book, Levi turns math and physics upside down, revealing how physics can simplify proofs and lead to quicker solutions and new theorems, and how physical solutions can illustrate why results are true in ways lengthy mathematical calculations never can.

Differentialgeometrie und Topologie sind wichtige Werkzeuge für die Theoretische Physik. Insbesondere finden sie Anwendung in den Gebieten der Astrophysik, der Teilchen- und Festkörperphysik. Das vorliegende beliebte Buch, das nun erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzt wurde, ist eine ideale Einführung für Masterstudenten und Forscher im Bereich der theoretischen und mathematischen Physik. - Im ersten Kapitel bietet das Buch einen Überblick über die Pfadintegralmethode und Eichtheorien. - Kapitel 2 beschäftigt sich mit den mathematischen Grundlagen von Abbildungen, Vektorräumen und der Topologie. - Die folgenden Kapitel beschäftigen sich mit fortgeschritteneren Konzepten der Geometrie und Topologie und diskutieren auch deren Anwendungen im Bereich der Flüssigkristalle, bei suprafluidem Helium, in der ART und der bosonischen Stringtheorie. - Daran anschließend findet eine Zusammenführung von Geometrie und Topologie statt: es geht um Faserbündel, characteristische Klassen und Indextheoreme (u.a. in Anwendung auf die supersymmetrische Quantenmechanik). - Die letzten beiden Kapitel widmen sich der spannendsten Anwendung von Geometrie und Topologie in der modernen Physik, nämlich den Eichfeldtheorien und der Analyse der Polakov'schen bosonischen Stringtheorie aus einer gemetrischen Perspektive. Mikio Nakahara studierte an der Universität Kyoto und am King’s in London Physik sowie klassische und Quantengravitationstheorie. Heute ist er Physikprofessor an der Kinki-Universität in Osaka (Japan), wo er u. a. über topologische Quantencomputer forscht. Diese Buch entstand aus einer Vorlesung, die er während Forschungsaufenthalten an der University of Sussex und an der Helsinki University of Sussex gehalten hat.
