#### Algebraic Curves and Finite Fields

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 196.00Algebra and number theory have always been counted among the most beautiful and fundamental mathematical areas with deep proofs and elegant results. However, for a long time they were not considered of any substantial importance for real-life applications. This has dramatically changed with the appearance of new topics such as modern cryptography,... more...

#### Plane Algebraic Curves

Springer Basel 2012; US$ 82.67This book offers a detailed and comprehensive introduction to the theory of plane algebraic curves, providing a foundation for the comprehension and exploration of modern work on singularities. Includes many examples, and references to additional literature. more...

#### Singularities of Plane Curves

Cambridge University Press 2000; US$ 76.00Comprehensive and self-contained exposition of singularities of plane curves, including new, previously unpublished results. more...

#### Prolegomena to a Middlebrow Arithmetic of Curves of Genus 2

Cambridge University Press 1996; US$ 84.00A unique insight into the topic of curves of genus 2, by two of the world's leading practitioners. more...

#### Curve and Surface Reconstruction

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 46.00Develops the fundamentals for processing point data into a digital mode and presents algorithms for surface reconstruction. more...

#### Families of Curves and the Origins of Partial Differentiation

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 255.00This book provides a detailed description of the main episodes in the emergence of partial differentiation during the period 1690-1740. It argues that the development of this concept - to a considerable degree of perfection - took place almost exclusively in problems concerning families of curves. Thus, the book shows the origins of the ideas and techniques... more...

#### The Elementary Theory of Groups

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 210.00After being an open question for sixty years the Tarski conjecture was answered in the affirmative by Olga Kharlampovich and Alexei Myasnikov and independently by Zlil Sela. Both proofs involve long and complicated applications of algebraic geometry over free groups as well as an extension of methods to solve equations in free groups originally... more...

#### A Guide to the Classification Theorem for Compact Surfaces

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 41.33This book offers a detailed proof of the classification theorem for compact surfaces. It presents the technical tools needed to deploy the method effectively as well as demonstrates their use in a clearly structured, worked example. more...

#### Mathematics of Shape Description

Wiley 2009; US$ 170.00 US$ 153.00Image processing problems are often not well defined because real images are contaminated with noise and other uncertain factors. In Mathematics of Shape Description , the authors take a mathematical approach to address these problems using the morphological and set-theoretic approach to image processing and computer graphics by presenting a simple... more...
