Combinatorial and Computational Geometry
by J. E. Goodman, J. Pach, E. Welzl
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2007
Number of pages: 616
This volume includes surveys and research articles exploring geometric arrangements, polytopes, packing, covering, discrete convexity, geometric algorithms and their complexity, and the combinatorial complexity of geometric objects, particularly in low dimension. There are points of contact with many applied areas such as mathematical programming, visibility problems, kinetic data structures, and biochemistry, and with algebraic topology, geometric probability, real algebraic geometry, and combinatorics.

The techniques of projective geometry provide the technical underpinning for perspective drawing and in particular for the modern version of the Renaissance artist, who produces the computer graphics we see every day on the web.

Origami is the art of folding sheets of paper into interesting and beautiful shapes. In this text the author presents a variety of techniques for origami geometric constructions. The field has surprising connections to other branches of mathematics.

This book collects accessible lectures on four geometrically flavored fields of mathematics that have experienced great development in recent years: hyperbolic geometry, dynamics in several complex variables, convex geometry, and volume estimation.

These are notes from an experimental mathematics course entitled Geometry and the Imagination as developed by Conway, Doyle, Thurston and others. The course aims to convey the richness, diversity, connectedness, depth and pleasure of mathematics.
