description
Geometry and its Applications is meant to address those who are interested in geometrical relationships, from simple planar geometry problems to difficult tasks in spatial geometry. The main emphasis is on the application of geometry in different fields such as engineering, architecture, biology, the arts, and music. Important geometrical terms and concepts such as multi-view projection and 3D projection, curvature of curves and surfaces, the geometry of motion, and non-Euclidian space are explained with many examples and numerous photos. Two practical tutorials round off this volume: free-hand geometrical drawing and the geometry of photography. Easy-to-understand pieces of advice support readers as they create their own distinctive, accurate spatial sketches.
