Download Geometry and Its Applications by Walter A. Meyer PDF

By Walter A. Meyer

Meyer's Geometry and Its purposes, moment Edition, combines conventional geometry with present rules to provide a contemporary process that's grounded in real-world functions. It balances the deductive technique with discovery studying, and introduces axiomatic, Euclidean geometry, non-Euclidean geometry, and transformational geometry. The textual content integrates functions and examples all through and comprises historic notes in lots of chapters.

The moment variation of Geometry and Its Applications is an important textual content for any collage or college that specializes in geometry's usefulness in different disciplines. it's in particular applicable for engineering and technological know-how majors, in addition to destiny arithmetic teachers.

  • Realistic purposes built-in through the textual content, together with (but no longer constrained to):
    • Symmetries of creative patterns
    • Physics
    • Robotics
    • Computer vision
    • Computer graphics
    • Stability of architectural structures
    • Molecular biology
    • Medicine
    • Pattern recognition
  • Historical notes incorporated in lots of chapters
