Editorial Reviews of Modern Mathematics and Applications in Computer Graphics and Vision:

Review
"Written in a pleasant and alive style, with suggestive quotations and witty comments of the author (also many photos illustrating the text are made by the author), the book will be of great help for students in computer science specializing in computer vision and computer graphics. Other students who use mathematics in their disciplines (physics, chemistry, biology, economics) will find the book as a good source of rapid and reliable information."

“In order to make the book easy to read the author omitted all the proofs. This does not mean that, at the same time, the rigor is sacrificed―the book contains rigorous definitions (put in boxes with headings) and the formal enounces of theorems (highlighted with gray shades). Instead presenting the proofs, the author prefers to carefully explain and motivate the notions and the results with emphasis on the intuition, with many examples and historical and philosophical insights.”

Review

“It gathers different areas of mathematics like algebra, geometry, and topology in one place and shows applications of them to computer graphics and vision.”

“This book is written in an accessible fashion with a number of images, examples, and exercises. The chapters can be read quite independently, depending on a reader's needs. The bottom-up approach of the presentation, in which the theory is presented, starting from a concrete system to an abstract one, makes the book easy to follow. The proofs of the theorems are omitted what furthermore facilitates the reading of the text.”

“This book is intended for upper level undergraduate students, graduate students and researchers in computer graphics, computer vision, and game programming.”
