Description

Contains many Mathematica programs for doing the geometry of curves in R2 and R3, and surfaces in R3. Examples include the computation of curvature, geodesics, minimal surfaces, and surfaces of constant curvature. Fully illustrated. A separate diskette containing all programs and notebooks is also available from the publisher. Winner of the Distinguished Mathematics Software Development Award, EDUCOM '93.
