The Mathematical Description of Shape & Form

E A Lord & C B Wilson

Synopsis

A wide-ranging survey of the applications of mathematics to problems of form description, presenting clearly and concisely a large number of applied geometrical methods. A unified viewpoint, based on the concept of mappings between geometrical spaces, is developed so that the individual methods are seen in the context of a framework of underlying principles. Contains over 200 diagrams and an extensive bibliography.

Readership: mathematicians, physical scientists and engineers, particularly those in engineering design, computer science, computer graphics, pattern recognition and image processing, biological sciences, geography, urban planning and design, architectual design, art and graphics.
