Geology of the San Francisco Bay Region (California Natural History Guides)

by Doris Sloan

This book is for San Francisco Bay Area residents and visitors who want to explore the geologic world of this spectacular area, to learn about its shapes, colors, and rocky foundations. Doris Sloan illuminates the colorful geologic mosaic that surrounds San Francisco Bay and lucidly explains the complex and fascinating processes that have forged it over millions of years.

Geology of the Sierra Nevada (Revised Edition)

by Mary Hill

The author introduces the rocks of the Sierra Nevada, which tell the mountains' tale, and explains how nature's forces, such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, faulting, erosion, and glaciation formed the range's world-renowned scenery and mineral wealth, including gold.

The Geomancer's Compass

by Melissa Hardy

This futuristic novel has all the elements YA fiction needs to draw critical attention from reviewers, and to elicit award-nominations. It is thematically interesting, culturally diverse, well-written, futuristic, and very funny. Set in the year 2021, this fantastic YA novel explores the tension between a young woman's future building infrastructure for Augmented Reality, and the commitment she makes to her dying grandmother to honour ancient Chinese magic. The Geomancer's Compass imagines a world in the near future while exploring the Chinese immigrant experience and the expanding, elastic and shifting nature of reality.

Geometric Algebra for Physicists

by Chris Doran Anthony Lasenby

Geometric algebra is a powerful mathematical language with applications across a range of subjects in physics and engineering. This book is a complete guide to the current state of the subject with early chapters providing a self-contained introduction to geometric algebra. Topics covered include new techniques for handling rotations in arbitrary dimensions, and the links between rotations, bivectors and the structure of the Lie groups. Following chapters extend the concept of a complex analytic function theory to arbitrary dimensions, with applications in quantum theory and electromagnetism. Later chapters cover advanced topics such as non-Euclidean geometry, quantum entanglement, and gauge theories. Applications such as black holes and cosmic strings are also explored. It can be used as a graduate text for courses on the physical applications of geometric algebra and is also suitable for researchers working in the fields of relativity and quantum theory.

Geometric Computing

by Eduardo Bayro-Corrochano

This book offers a gentle introduction to Clifford geometric algebra, an advanced mathematical framework, for applications in perception action systems. Part I, is written in an accessible way allowing readers to easily grasp the mathematical system of Clifford algebra. Part II presents related topics. While Part 3 features practical applications for Computer Vision, Robotics, Image Processing and Neural Computing. Topics and Features include: theory and application of the quaternion Fourier and wavelet transforms, thorough discussion on geometric computing under uncertainty, an entire chapter devoted to the useful conformal geometric algebra, presents examples and hints for the use of public domain computer programs for geometric algebra. The modern framework for geometric computing highlighted will be of great use for communities working on image processing, computer vision, artificial intelligence, neural networks, neuroscience, robotics, control engineering, human and robot interfaces, haptics and humanoids.

Geometric Modeling and Reasoning of Human-Centered Freeform Products

by Charlie C. Wang

The recent trend in user-customized product design requires the shape of products to be automatically adjusted according to the human body's shape, so that people will feel more comfortable when wearing these products. Geometric approaches can be used to design the freeform shape of products worn by people, which can greatly improve the efficiency of design processes in various industries involving customized products (e.g., garment design, toy design, jewel design, shoe design, and design of medical devices, etc.). These products are usually composed of very complex geometric shapes (represented by free-form surfaces), and are not driven by a parameter table but a digital human model with free-form shapes or part of human bodies (e.g., wrist, foot, and head models). Geometric Modeling and Reasoning of Human-Centered Freeform Products introduces the algorithms of human body reconstruction, freeform product modeling, constraining and reconstructing freeform products, and shape optimization for improving the manufacturability of freeform products. Based on these techniques, the design automation problem for human-centered freeform products can be fundamentally solved. Researchers and developers working on problems of automatic designing individually customized products can use this book as a reference, and it can also be used in courses in computer-aided product design at the graduate level.

Geometrical methods of mathematical physics

by Bernard F. Schutz

In recent years the methods of modern differential geometry have become of considerable importance in theoretical physics and have found application in relativity and cosmology, high-energy physics and field theory, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics and mechanics. This textbook provides an introduction to these methods - in particular Lie derivatives, Lie groups and differential forms - and covers their extensive applications to theoretical physics. The reader is assumed to have some familiarity with advanced calculus, linear algebra and a little elementary operator theory. The advanced physics undergraduate should therefore find the presentation quite accessible. This account will prove valuable for those with backgrounds in physics and applied mathematics who desire an introduction to the subject. Having studied the book, the reader will be able to comprehend research papers that use this mathematics and follow more advanced pure-mathematical expositions.

Geometry

by Siegfried Haenisch

Geometry is the study of how points, lines, and planes can be used to picture to space around us. In this book, the main attention will be placed on plane geometry. Plane geometry studies geometric figures in a plane, like squares, triangles, and circles. Later, we will learn about solid figures like cubes, prisms, and spheres.

Geometry

by David A. Brannan Matthew F. Esplen Jeremy J. Gray

This richly illustrated and clearly written undergraduate textbook captures the excitement and beauty of geometry. The approach is that of Klein in his Erlangen programme: a geometry is a space together with a set of transformations of the space. The authors explore various geometries: affine, projective, inversive, hyperbolic and elliptic. In each case they carefully explain the key results and discuss the relationships between the geometries. New features in this second edition include concise end-of-chapter summaries to aid student revision, a list of further reading and a list of special symbols. The authors have also revised many of the end-of-chapter exercises to make them more challenging and to include some interesting new results. Full solutions to the 200 problems are included in the text, while complete solutions to all of the end-of-chapter exercises are available in a new Instructors' Manual, which can be downloaded from www. cambridge. org/9781107647831.
