The Art of Insight in Science and Engineering: Mastering Complexity
by Sanjoy Mahajan
Publisher: The MIT Press 2014
Number of pages: 409
Sanjoy Mahajan shows us that the way to master complexity is through insight rather than precision. The book first teaches the tools for organizing complexity, then distinguishes the two paths for discarding complexity: with and without loss of information.

Shape interrogation is the process of extraction of information from a geometric model. It is a fundamental component of CAD/CAM systems. The authors focus on shape interrogation of geometric models bounded by free-form surfaces.

In this text we discuss a computer-based approach to design optimization, to search for the best design according to criteria that we specify. Further, we employ sophisticated algorithms that enable the computer to efficiently search for the optimum.
