Real Methods in Complex and CR Geometry: Lectures given at the C.I.M.E. Summer School held in Martina Franca, Italy, June 30 - July 6, 2002

The geometry of genuine submanifolds in complicated manifolds and the research in their mappings belong to the main complex streams of latest arithmetic. during this sector converge the options of varied and complicated mathematical fields akin to P. D. E. 's, boundary price difficulties, prompted equations, analytic discs in symplectic areas, complicated dynamics.

Designing fair curves and surfaces: shape quality in geometric modeling and computer-aided design

This cutting-edge examine of the strategies used for designing curves and surfaces for computer-aided layout functions makes a speciality of the primary that reasonable shapes are constantly freed from unessential beneficial properties and are easy in layout. The authors outline equity mathematically, reveal how newly constructed curve and floor schemes warrantly equity, and help the person in picking out and removal form aberrations in a floor version with out destroying the relevant form features of the version.
