  • Mathematical Basics of Motion and Deformation in Computer Graphicsby Ken Anjyo; Hiroyuki Ochiai

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2014; US$ 45.00

    This synthesis lecture presents an intuitive introduction to the mathematics of motion and deformation in computer graphics. Starting with familiar concepts in graphics, such as Euler angles, quaternions, and affine transformations, we illustrate that a mathematical theory behind these concepts enables us to develop the techniques for efficient/effective... more...

  • Semantic Breakthrough in Drug Discoveryby Bin Chen; Huijun Wang; Ying Ding; David Wild

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2014; US$ 45.00

    The current drug development paradigm---sometimes expressed as, ``One disease, one target, one drug''---is under question, as relatively few drugs have reached the market in the last two decades. Meanwhile, the research focus of drug discovery is being placed on the study of drug action on biological systems as a whole, rather than on individual components... more...
