Most widely held works by David A Hoffman
Geometric analysis and computer graphics : proceedings of a workshop held May 23-25, 1988 by Paul Concus( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and Romanian and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The meeting at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley was structured around principal lectures given by Almgren, Callahan, Ericksen, Francis, Gulliver, Hanrahan, Kajiya, Polthier, Sethian, Sterling, Thomas, and Vogel. The divergent backgrounds of these and the many other participants, as reflected in their lectures at the meeting and in the papers presented here, testify to the unifying element of the workshop's central theme. The depth and range of the new developments presented in the lectures point to scientific and technological frontiers being crossed with impressive speed. The present volume is offered as a permanent record for those who were present, and also with a view towards making the material available to a wider audience than were able to attend
The geometry of the generalized Gauss map by David A Hoffman( Book )

14 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Global theory of minimal surfaces : proceedings of the Clay Mathematics Institute 2001 Summer School, Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California, June 25-July 27, 2001 by Clay Mathematics Institute( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematics in Arcadia : Tom Stoppard in conversation with Robert Osserman by Tom Stoppard( Visual )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dialogue between the mathematician Robert Osserman and the playwright Tom Stoppard commenting on Stoppard's play Arcadia. The plot of the stageplay revolves around the philosophical inquiries of a young woman and her tutor concerning the nature of mathematics, specifically Fermat's last theorem, and the investigations of two other scholars into the proofs for the theorem
Natural minimal surfaces via theory and computation by David A Hoffman( Visual )

5 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Hoffman presents basic analysis and geometry needed to understand minimal surfaces and discusses computer techniques used to discover new families of examples. Recent applications to the study of block copolymers are also presented
A course in differential geometry by Wilhelm Klingenberg( Book )

5 editions published between 1978 and 1983 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This English edition could serve as a text for a first year graduate course on differential geometry, as did for a long time the Chicago Notes of Chern mentioned in the Preface to the German Edition. Suitable references for ordin ary differential equations are Hurewicz, W. Lectures on ordinary differential equations. MIT Press, Cambridge, Mass., 1958, and for the topology of surfaces: Massey, Algebraic Topology, Springer-Verlag, New York, 1977. Upon David Hoffman fell the difficult task of transforming the tightly constructed German text into one which would mesh well with the more relaxed format of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics series. There are some e1aborations and several new figures have been added. I trust that the merits of the German edition have survived whereas at the same time the efforts of David helped to elucidate the general conception of the Course where we tried to put Geometry before Formalism without giving up mathematical rigour. 1 wish to thank David for his work and his enthusiasm during the whole period of our collaboration. At the same time I would like to commend the editors of Springer-Verlag for their patience and good advice. Bonn Wilhelm Klingenberg June,1977 vii From the Preface to the German Edition This book has its origins in a one-semester course in differential geometry which 1 have given many times at Gottingen, Mainz, and Bonn
