Art Gallery Theorems and Algorithms
by Joseph O'Rourke - Oxford University Press
Art gallery theorems and algorithms are so called because they relate to problems involving the visibility of geometrical shapes and their internal surfaces. This book explores generalizations and specializations in these areas.
