Linear Geometry with Computer Graphics

ISBN: 0824788982
Release Date: 1992-12-16
Genre: Mathematics

Stressing the interplay between theory and its practice, this text presents the construction of linear models that satisfy geometric postulate systems and develops geometric topics in computer graphics. It includes a computer graphics utility library of specialized subroutines on a 3.5 disk, designed for use with Turbo PASCAL 4.0 (or later version) - an effective means of computer-aided instruction for writing graphics problems.;Providing instructors with maximum flexibility that allows for the mathematics or computer graphics sections to be taught independently, this book: reviews linear algebra and notation, focusing on ideas of geometric significance that are often omitted in general purpose linear algebra courses; develops symmetric bilinear forms through classical results, including the inertia theorem, Witt's cancellation theorem and the unitary diagonalization of symmetric matrices; examines the Klein Erlanger programm, constructing models of geometries, and studying associated transformation groups; clarifies how to construct geometries from groups, encompassing topological notions; and introduces topics in computer graphics, including geometric modeling, surface rendering and transformation groups.

Linear Geometry

Author: K. W. Gruenberg
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781475741018
Release Date: 2013-12-01
Genre: Mathematics

This is essentially a book on linear algebra. But the approach is somewhat unusual in that we emphasise throughout the geometric aspect of the subject. The material is suitable for a course on linear algebra for mathe matics majors at North American Universities in their junior or senior year and at British Universities in their second or third year. However, in view of the structure of undergraduate courses in the United States, it is very possible that, at many institutions, the text may be found more suitable at the beginning graduate level. The book has two aims: to provide a basic course in linear algebra up to, and including, modules over a principal ideal domain; and to explain in rigorous language the intuitively familiar concepts of euclidean, affine, and projective geometry and the relations between them. It is increasingly recognised that linear algebra should be approached from a geometric point of VIew. This applies not only to mathematics majors but also to mathematically-oriented natural scientists and engineers.

Linear Algebra and Geometry

ISBN: 9056990497
Release Date: 1997-10-01
Genre: Mathematics

This advanced textbook on linear algebra and geometry covers a wide range of classical and modern topics. Differing from existing textbooks in approach, the work illustrates the many-sided applications and connections of linear algebra with functional analysis, quantum mechanics and algebraic and differential geometry. The subjects covered in some detail include normed linear spaces, functions of linear operators, the basic structures of quantum mechanics and an introduction to linear programming. Also discussed are Kahler's metic, the theory of Hilbert polynomials, and projective and affine geometries. Unusual in its extensive use of applications in physics to clarify each topic, this comprehensice volume should be of particular interest to advanced undergraduates and graduates in mathematics and physics, and to lecturers in linear and multilinear algebra, linear programming and quantum mechanics.

Geometry of Linear 2 normed Spaces

Author: Raymond W. Freese
Publisher: Nova Publishers
ISBN: 1590330196
Release Date: 2001-01-01
Genre: Mathematics

To encourage researchers in mathematics to apply metric geometry, functional analysis, and topology, Freese and Cho, who are not identified, introduce 2-metric spaces and linear 2 normed spaces. They survey recent results on the relations between linear 2-normed spaces and normed linear spaces, the completion of linear 2-normed spaced, 2-inner spaces, 2-inner product spaces, strict convexity, strict 2-convexity, uniform convexity, isometry conditions, orthogonal relations, quadratic forms, and other topics. c.

Linear Algebra Through Geometry

Author: Thomas Banchoff
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 0387975861
Release Date: 1993-09-10
Genre: Mathematics

This book introduces the concepts of linear algebra through the careful study of two and three-dimensional Euclidean geometry. This approach makes it possible to start with vectors, linear transformations, and matrices in the context of familiar plane geometry and to move directly to topics such as dot products, determinants, eigenvalues, and quadratic forms. The later chapters deal with n-dimensional Euclidean space and other finite-dimensional vector space.

Linear Algebra and Geometry

Author: Irving Kaplansky
Publisher: Courier Corporation
ISBN: 0486432335
Release Date: 1974
Genre: Mathematics

The author of this text seeks to remedy a common failing in teaching algebra: the neglect of related instruction in geometry. Focusing on inner product spaces, orthogonal similarity, and elements of geometry, this volume is illustrated with an abundance of examples, exercises, and proofs and is suitable for both undergraduate and graduate courses. 1974 edition.

Linear Algebra and Projective Geometry

Publisher: Courier Corporation
ISBN: 9780486154664
Release Date: 2012-06-11
Genre: Mathematics

Geared toward upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, this text establishes that projective geometry and linear algebra are essentially identical. The supporting evidence consists of theorems offering an algebraic demonstration of certain geometric concepts. 1952 edition.

Linear Algebra and Geometry

Author: Igor R. Shafarevich
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642309946
Release Date: 2012-08-23
Genre: Mathematics

This book on linear algebra and geometry is based on a course given by renowned academician I.R. Shafarevich at Moscow State University. The book begins with the theory of linear algebraic equations and the basic elements of matrix theory and continues with vector spaces, linear transformations, inner product spaces, and the theory of affine and projective spaces. The book also includes some subjects that are naturally related to linear algebra but are usually not covered in such courses: exterior algebras, non-Euclidean geometry, topological properties of projective spaces, theory of quadrics (in affine and projective spaces), decomposition of finite abelian groups, and finitely generated periodic modules (similar to Jordan normal forms of linear operators). Mathematical reasoning, theorems, and concepts are illustrated with numerous examples from various fields of mathematics, including differential equations and differential geometry, as well as from mechanics and physics.

Linear Algebra Geometry and Transformation

Genre: Mathematics

The Essentials of a First Linear Algebra Course and More Linear Algebra, Geometry and Transformation provides students with a solid geometric grasp of linear transformations. It stresses the linear case of the inverse function and rank theorems and gives a careful geometric treatment of the spectral theorem. An Engaging Treatment of the Interplay among Algebra, Geometry, and Mappings The text starts with basic questions about images and pre-images of mappings, injectivity, surjectivity, and distortion. In the process of answering these questions in the linear setting, the book covers all the standard topics for a first course on linear algebra, including linear systems, vector geometry, matrix algebra, subspaces, independence, dimension, orthogonality, eigenvectors, and diagonalization. A Smooth Transition to the Conceptual Realm of Higher Mathematics This book guides students on a journey from computational mathematics to conceptual reasoning. It takes them from simple "identity verification" proofs to constructive and contrapositive arguments. It will prepare them for future studies in algebra, multivariable calculus, and the fields that use them.
