By Jacob T. Schwartz,Chee-Keng Yap

First released in 1987, the seven chapters that include this publication overview modern paintings at the geometric aspect of robotics. the 1st bankruptcy defines the elemental objective of robotics in very huge phrases and descriptions a learn schedule each one of whose goods constitutes a considerable quarter for additional examine. the second one bankruptcy offers lately constructed concepts that experience started to deal with the geometric facet of this study schedule and the 3rd studies numerous utilized geometric principles vital to modern paintings at the challenge of movement making plans. using Voronoi diagrams, a topic opened in those chapters, is explored extra later within the ebook. The fourth bankruptcy develops a subject in computational geometry having visible importance for the simplification of sensible robotics difficulties — the approximation or decomposition of advanced geometric gadgets into easy ones. the ultimate chapters deal with examples of a category of geometric ‘reconstruction’ challenge that experience speedy program to computer-aided geometric layout systems.

Machine Learning: An Algorithmic Perspective

Conventional books on computing device studying should be divided into teams — these aimed toward complex undergraduates or early postgraduates with moderate mathematical wisdom and people who are primers on find out how to code algorithms. the sector is prepared for a textual content that not just demonstrates the way to use the algorithms that make up computer studying tools, but additionally offers the historical past had to know the way and why those algorithms paintings.

Cryptography for Developers

The one advisor for software program builders who needs to study and enforce cryptography appropriately and cheaply. Cryptography for Developers begins with a bankruptcy that introduces the topic of cryptography to the reader. the second one bankruptcy discusses how you can enforce huge integer mathematics as required by way of RSA and ECC public key algorithms the following chapters speak about the implementation of symmetric ciphers, one-way hashes, message authentication codes, mixed authentication and encryption modes, public key cryptography and eventually transportable coding practices.

Biomimetic Design Method for Innovation and Sustainability

Providing a singular biomimetic layout process for moving layout strategies from nature to know-how, this ebook specializes in structure-function styles in nature and complicated modeling instruments derived from TRIZ, the speculation of creative problem-solving. The ebook comprises an in depth literature overview on biomimicry as an engine of either innovation and sustainability, and discusses intimately the biomimetic layout approach, present biomimetic layout tools and instruments.

What Algorithms Want: Imagination in the Age of Computing (MIT Press)

We rely on -- we think in -- algorithms to assist us get a trip, opt for which e-book to shop for, execute a mathematical evidence. it is as though we expect of code as a magic spell, an incantation to bare what we have to understand or even what we'd like. people have regularly believed that sure invocations -- the wedding vow, the shaman's curse -- don't basically describe the realm yet make it.
