Beyond the third dimension : geometry, computer graphics, and higher dimensions by Thomas Banchoff( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1996 in English and held by 1,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond The Third Dimension investigates ways of picturing and understanding dimensions below and above our own. Ranging from Egyptian pyramids to the nineteenth-century satire Flatland to the paintings of Salvador Dali
Linear algebra through geometry by Thomas Banchoff( Book )

39 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book we lead the student to an understanding of elementary linear algebra by emphasizing the geometric significance of the subject. Our experience in teaching beginning undergraduates over the years has convinced us that students learn the new ideas of linear algebra best when these ideas are grounded in the familiar geometry of two and three dimensions. Many important notions of linear algebra already occur in these dimensions in a non-trivial way, and a student with a confident grasp of these ideas will encounter little difficulty in extending them to higher dimensions and to more abstract algebraic systems. Moreover, we feel that this geometric approach provides a solid basis for the linear algebra needed in engineering, physics, biology, and chemistry, as well as in economics and statistics. The great advantage of beginning with a thorough study of the linear algebra of the plane is that students are introduced quickly to the most important new concepts while they are still on the familiar ground of two-dimensional geometry. In short order, the student sees and uses the notions of dot product, linear transformations, determinants, eigenvalues, and quadratic forms. This is done in Chapters 2.0-2.7. Then the very same outline is used in Chapters 3.0-3.7 to present the linear algebra of three-dimensional space, so that the former ideas are reinforced while new concepts are being introduced
Flatland : a romance of many dimensions by Edwin Abbott Abbott( Book )

34 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Flatland, Edwin Abbott Abbott's story of a two-dimensional universe, as told by one of its inhabitants who is introduced to the mysteries of three-dimensional space, has enjoyed an enduring popularity from the time of its publication in 1884. This fully annotated edition enables the modern day reader to understand and appreciate the many "dimensions" of this classic satire with commentary on language and literary style, including numerous definitions of obscure words and an appendix on Abbott's life and work. Historical commentary, writings by Plato and Aristotle, and citations from Abbott's other writings work together to show how this tale relates to Abbott's views of society in late-Victorian England and classical Greece. Approaching the book from a mathematical stance, additional notes and illustrations enhance the usefulness of Flatland as an elementary introduction to higher-dimensional geometry"--Jacket

Differential geometry of curves and surfaces by Thomas Banchoff( Book )

23 editions published between 2010 and 2019 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Students and professors of an undergraduate course in the differential geometry will appreciate the clear exposition and comprehensive exercises in this book, that focuses on the geometric properties of curves and surfaces, one-and-two-dimensional objects in Enclidean space. The problems generally relate to questions of local properties (the properties observed as a point on the curve or surface) or global properties (the properties of the object as a whole). Some of the more interesting theorems explore relationships between local and global properties." "A special feature is the availability of accompanying online interactive java applets coordinated with each section. The applets allow students to investigate and manipulate curves and surfaces to develop intuition and to help analyze geometric phenomena."--Jacket
Flatland : the movie edition : a romance of many dimensions by Edwin Abbott Abbott( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edwin Abbott's beloved mathematical adventure novel Flatland (1884) is being introduced to a whole new generation of readers and viewers through Flatland: The Movie, a dramatic computer-animated adaptation starring Martin Sheen, Kristen Bell, Michael York, Tony Hale, and Joe Estevez. This book is the companion to the movie--and the ultimate edition of the classic book on which it is based. A beautiful, large-format volume, Flatland: The Movie Edition includes: the full text of the original novel; the screenplay of the movie; essays on the making of the movie by the writers and filmmakers--producer Seth Caplan, director Jeffrey Travis, and director and animator Dano Johnson; color illustrations; and a new introduction by Thomas Banchoff, a Brown University mathematician and Flatland authority who served as an advisor to the filmmakers. By describing the challenges the filmmakers faced in updating a Victorian mathematical allegory for a new generation and transforming it into a compelling animated story, Flatland: The Movie Edition makes watching the movie and reading Abbott's book even more illuminating and enjoyable. - Publisher

Rational Mechanics : the Classic Notre Dame Course by R. Catesby Taliaferro( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developed from a classic undergraduate course on the study of the motion of bodies, this volume stresses the history of science as well as relevant physics and mathematics. R. Catesby Taliaferro developed a well-attended and much-revered course during his 20-year tenure at Notre Dame. He left among his papers the unfinished manuscript for this text, which has now been completed and prepared for publication by a group of his former students and colleagues. Suitable for undergraduates and beginning graduate students of physics and the history of science, this volume begins with an exploration of
Educational computing in mathematics : proceedings of the Internat. Congress on Educational Computing in Mathematics ; Rome, Italy, 4-6 June, 1987 by International Congress on Educational Computing in Mathematics( Book )

Dimension Dalí : L'obsession d'un artiste pour la science by Susi Marquès( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in Catalan and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tout au long de sa vie, Dali a connu une véritable obsession pour la science, obsession dont témoigne nombre de ces oeuvres. Lecteur avide de textes scientifiques, il cultiva l'amitié des plus célèbres chercheurs de son temps, dont certains Nobel comme James D. Watson et Ilya Prigogine. Dimension Dali révèle un aspect méconnu d'une figure capitale du XXème siècle et offre une nouvelle perspective pour interpréter quelques-uns de ses chefs d'oeuvre
