Google SketchUp is the exciting free software package that makes 3D available to everybody. Whether you need to build 3D models for work, or you've just always wanted to explore 3D modeling, Google SketchUp was made for you. Still, it does take a bit of understanding to get started, so...
Focuses on modern techniques used to generate synthetic three-dimensional images in a fraction of a second. This book discusses practical rendering methods used in games and other applications. It also presents a theoretical framework and relevant mathematics for the field of interactive computer graphics.
Presents the main approaches developed for a posteriori error estimation in various problems. This book contains a number of mathematical results and lists a posteriori error estimation methods. It includes computable bounds of approximation, errors checking algorithms, iteration processes, finite element methods, and more.
Introduction to Object-Oriented Modeling and Simulation provides an introduction to modern object-oriented design principles and applications for the broad and fast-growing area of modeling and simulation, including both visual and textual modeling/programming.
Phylogenetic evolutionary trees and networks are widely used throughout evolutionary biology, epidemiology, and ecology to infer the historical relationships between species through inherited characteristics. Semple and Steel discuss the mathematics that underlies the reconstruction and analysis of these phylogenetic trees.
Essential skills for first-time programmers! This easy-to-use book explains the fundamentals of UML. You'll learn to read, draw, and use this visual modeling language to create clear and effective blueprints for software development projects.
