Geometry and its Applications in Arts, Nature and Technology
Aims and Scope
With many examples and numerous photos, this book explains important geometrical terms and concepts such as multi-view projection and 3D projection, curve bends and surface cambering, the geometry of movement and non-Euclidian space.
From the reviews: "A marvelous book, abundantly illustrated. It contains many applications ... all with an underlying geometric flavor. ... What is immediately striking at first glance is the luxury of this publication: thick paper with hundreds of colorful glossy pictures and graphs. If you love books and geometry, this is one to fall in love with. ... This picture book is more than just a coffee-table book ... of a math department, because it contains not only many pictures, but also gives theorems and proofs(!)." (A. Bultheel, The European Mathematical Society, February, 2013)
