**Discrete Differential Geometry: An Applied Introduction**

by M. Desbrun, P. Schroeder, M. Wardetzky

**Publisher**: Columbia University 2008**Number of pages**: 103

**Description**:

This new and elegant area of mathematics has exciting applications, as this course demonstrates by presenting practical examples in geometry processing (surface fairing, parameterization, and remeshing) and simulation (of cloth, shells, rods, and fluids).
