Media theory : interdisciplinary applied mathematics by David Eppstein( Book )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The focus of this book is a mathematical structure modeling a physical or biologist system that can be in any of a number of discrete states. Each state is characterized by just one of these features. The evolution of such a system over time is considered. This structure, which is called a 'medium, ' is investigated here from various standpoints: aglebraic, geometric, algorithmic, and probabilistic (stochastic)."--Jacket
Knowledge spaces : applications in education by Jean-Claude Falmagne( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book describes up-to-date applications and relevant theoretical results. These applications come from various places, but the most important one, numerically speaking, is the internet based educational system ALEKS. The ALEKS system is bilingual English-Spanish and covers all of mathematics, from third grade to the end of high school, and chemistry. It is also widely used in higher education because US students are often poorly prepared when they reach the university level. The chapter by Taagepera and Arasasingham deals with the application of knowledge spaces, independent of ALEKS, to th
Mesh generation and optimal triangulation by Marshall Wayne Bern( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We survey the computational geometry relevant to finite-element mesh generation. We especially focus on optimal triangulations of geometric domains in two- and three-dimensions. An optimal triangulation is a partition of the domain into triangles or tetrahedra, that is best according to some criterion that measures the size, shape, or number of triangles. We discuss algorithms both for the optimization of triangulations on a fixed set of vertices and for the placement of new vertices (Steiner points). We briefly survey the heuristic algorithms used in some practical mesh generators."
Simultaneous strong separations of probabilistic and unambiguous complexity classes by David Eppstein( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We study the relationship between probabilistic and unambiguous computation, and provide strong relativized evidence that they are incomparable. In particular, we display a relativized world in which the complexity classes embodying these paradigms of computation are mutually immune. We answer questions formulated in -- and extend the line of research opened by -- Geske and Grollman [15] and Balcázar and Russo [3]."
Maintenance of a minimum spanning forest in a dynamic planar graph( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We give efficient algorithms for maintaining a minimum spanning forest of a planar graph subject to on-line modifications. The modifications supported include changes in the edge weights, and insertion and deletion of edges and vertices. To implement the algorithms, we develop a data structure called an edge-ordered dynamic tree, which is a variant of the dynamic tree data structure of Sleator and Tarjan. Using this data structure, our algorithms run in O(log n) time per operation and O(n) space. The algorithms can be used to maintain the connected components of a dynamic planar graph in O(log n) time per operation."
Parallel construction of quadtrees and quality triangulations by Marshall Wayne Bern( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We describe efficient PRAM algorithms for constructing unbalanced quadtrees, balanced quadtrees, and quadtree-based finite element meshes. Our algorithms take time O(log n) for point set input and O(log n log k) time for planar straight-line graphs, using O(n+k/log n) processors, where n measures input size k output size."
A deterministic linear time algorithm for geometric separators and its application by David Eppstein( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We give a deterministic linear time algorithm for finding a 'good' sphere separator of a k-ply neighborhood system [phi] in any fixed dimension, where a k-ply neighborhood system in R[superscript d] is a collection of n balls such that no points in the space is covered by more than k balls. The separating sphere intersects at most O(k[superscript 1/d]n[superscript 1-1/d] balls of [phi] and divides the remaining of [phi] into two parts: those in the interior and those in the exterior of the sphere, respectively, so that the larger part contains at most [delta]n balls ((d+1)/(d+2)<[delta]<1). This result improves the O(n²) time deterministic algorithm of Miller and Teng [30] and answers a major algorithmic open question posed by Miller, Teng, Thurston, and Vavasis [23, 26]. The deterministic algorithm hinges on the use of a new method for deriving the separator property of neighborhood systems. Using this algorithm, we devise an O(kn+n log n) time deterministic algorithm for computing the intersection graph of a k-ply neighborhood system. We give an O(n log n) time algorithm for constructing a linear space, O(log n) query time search structure for a geometric query problem associated with k-ply neighborhood systems, and we use this data structure in an algorithm for approximating the value of k within a constant factor in time O(n log n). We also develop a deterministic linear time algorithm for finding an O(k[superscript 1/d]n[superscript 1-1/d])-separator for a k-nearest neighborhood graph in d dimensions."

Geometry in action by David Eppstein( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Web Feet summary: This site has a collection of examples of applied geometry in a wide range of disciplines, from graphics to robotics to architecture. It collects various areas in which ideas from discrete and computational geometry (meaning mainly low-dimensional Euclidean geometry) meet some real-world applications. It also contains brief descriptions of those applications and the geometric questions arising from them, as well as pointers to Web pages on the applications themselves and on their geometric connections. The site is largely organized by application, but some major general techniques are also listed as topics. Although this site may be too advanced for some students, for others it may inspire greater interest in the study of geometry

Edge insertion for optiomal triangulations by Marshall Wayne Bern( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "The edge-insertion paradigm improves a triangulation of a finite point set in R² iteratively by adding a new edge, deleting intersecting old edges, and retriangulating the resulting two polygonal regions. After presenting an abstract view of the paradigm, this paper shows that it can be used to obtain polynomial time algorithms for several types of optimal triangulations."
