Discrete Geometry is the kind of area in which problems can be quickly expressed and understood by a wide audience, as usually only elementary geometry is involved. This long-awaited book is based on William O.J. Moser's problem collection that has been circulating in the community for many years. The authors state a much extended variety of problems. For each problem they provide the historical background and give comprehensive references. The book will be of great value to any graduate student and researcher in discrete geometry.Bernard Chazelle (Princeton University): This will be a...

A complete, self-contained introduction to a powerful and resurging mathematical discipline . Combinatorial Geometry presents and explains with complete proofs some of the most important results and methods of this relatively young mathematical discipline, started by Minkowski, Fejes Toth, Rogers, and Erd s. Nearly half the results presented in this book were discovered over the past twenty years, and most have never before appeared in any monograph. Combinatorial Geometry will be of particular interest to mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists, and materials scientists interested in...

During the past few decades, the gradual merger of Discrete Geometry and the newer discipline of Computational Geometry has provided enormous impetus to mathematicians and computer scientists interested in geometric problems. This volume, which contains 32 papers on a broad range of topics of current interest in the field, is an outgrowth of that synergism. It includes surveys and research articles exploring geometric arrangements, polytopes, packing, covering, discrete convexity, geometric algorithms and their complexity, and the combinatorial complexity of geometric objects, particularly in...

While we were busy putting together the present collection of articles celebrating the twentieth birthday of our journal, Discrete & Computational Geometry, and, in a way, of the ?eld that has become known under the same name, two more years have elapsed. There is no doubt that DCG has crossed the line between childhood and adulthood. By the mid-1980s it became evident that the solution of many algorithmic qu- tions in the then newly emerging ?eld of computational geometry required classical methodsandresultsfromdiscreteandcombinatorialgeometry. Forinstance, visibility and ray shooting...

Discrete and computational geometry are two fields which in recent years have benefitted from the interaction between mathematics and computer science. The results are applicable in areas such as motion planning, robotics, scene analysis, and computer aided design. The book consists of twelve chapters summarizing the most recent results and methods in discrete and computational geometry. All authors are well-known experts in these fields. They give concise and self-contained surveys of the most efficient combinatorical, probabilistic and topological methods that can be used to design...

An impressive collection of original research papers in discrete and computational geometry, contributed by many leading researchers in these fields, as a tribute to Jacob E. Goodman and Richard Pollack, two of the 'founding fathers' of the area, on the occasion of their 2/3 x 100 birthdays. The topics covered by the 41 papers provide professionals and graduate students with a comprehensive presentation of the state of the art in most aspects of discrete and computational geometry, including geometric algorithms, study of arrangements, geometric graph theory, quantitative and algorithmic...
