This new and elegant area of mathematics has exciting applications, as this text demonstrates by presenting practical examples in geometry processing (surface fairing, parameterization, and remeshing) and simulation (of cloth, shells, rods, fluids).
Discrete mathematics is the study of mathematical structures that are fundamentally discrete rather than continuous. This book will help you think well about discrete problems: problems where tools like calculus fail because there's no continuity.
