- Covers basic MATLAB® as well as complex geometrical modeling problems related to analysis and differential equations
- Integrates traditional differential and non-Euclidean geometries with current computer systems in a practical and user-friendly format
- Provides more than 150 stimulating exercises and problems and over 300 figures reproducible using Matlab
This text on geometry is devoted to various central geometrical topics including: graphs of functions, transformations, (non-)Euclidean geometries, curves and surfaces as well as their applications in a variety of disciplines. This book presents elementary methods for analytical modeling and demonstrates the potential for symbolic computational tools to support the development of analytical solutions.
The author systematically examines several powerful tools of MATLAB® including 2D and 3D animation of geometric images with shadows and colors, transformations using matrices, and then studies more complex geometrical modeling problems related to analysis of curves and surfaces. With over 150 stimulating exercises and problems, this text integrates traditional differential and non-Euclidean geometries with more current computer systems in a practical and user-friendly format.
