**Discrete Differential Geometry: An Applied Introduction**

by M. Desbrun, P. Schroeder, M. Wardetzky

**Publisher**: Columbia University 2008**Number of pages**: 103

**Description**:

This new and elegant area of mathematics has exciting applications, as this course demonstrates by presenting practical examples in geometry processing (surface fairing, parameterization, and remeshing) and simulation (of cloth, shells, rods, and fluids).

**Projective and Polar Spaces**

by

**Peter J. Cameron**-

**Queen Mary College**

The author is concerned with the geometry of incidence of points and lines, over an arbitrary field, and unencumbered by metrics or continuity (or even betweenness). The treatment of these themes blends the descriptive with the axiomatic.
