Most widely held works by Jacob E Goodman
Handbook of discrete and computational geometry by Jacob E Goodman ( Book )
28 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Over the past decade or so, researchers and professionals in discrete geometry and the newer field of computational geometry have developed a highly productive collaborative relationship, where each area benefits from the methods and insights of the other. At the same time that discrete and computational geometry are becoming more closely identified, applications of the results of this work are being used in an increasing number of widely differing areas, from computer graphics and linear programming to manufacturing and robotics. The editors and authors, all respected experts in their fields, have answered the need for a comprehensive handbook for professionals in these and related fields, and for other users of the body of results. The Handbook of Discrete and Computational Geometry brings together, for the first time, all of the major results in both these fields into one volume."--BOOK JACKET

Discrete and computational geometry : the Goodman-Pollack festschrift ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is 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, arrangements, geometric graph theory and quantitative and algorithmic real algebraic geometry, with important connections to algebraic geometry, convexity, polyhedral combinatorics, and the theory of packing, covering, and tiling. The book will serve as an invaluable source of reference in this discipline, and an indispensible component of the library of anyone working in the above areas

Common tangents and common transversals by Jacob E Goodman ( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "The paper consists of two parts. The first part shows that, given a family of k[less than or equal to]d compact convex and separated sets in E[superscript d] (i.e. no (k-2)--Flat intersects all these sets), the space of all oriented common tangent hyperplanes to these sets, which separate them in any fixed manner (i.e. contain some specified subset of them on their positive side and the rest on their negative side) is homeomorphic to the sphere S[superscript d-k]. The second part exploits this result to obtain sharp bounds on the combinatorial complexity of the space of all common transversal hyperplanes to a given d-separated family of n compact convex sets in E[superscript d], showing this complexity to be O(n[superscript d-1])."
