Topology for Computing (Cambridge Monographs on Applied and Computational Mathematics)

Afra J. Zomorodian


Written by way of a working laptop or computer scientist for desktop scientists, this ebook teaches topology from a computational perspective, and indicates easy methods to resolve actual difficulties that experience topological points related to pcs. Such difficulties come up in lots of components, akin to special effects, robotics, structural biology, and chemistry. the writer begins from the fundamentals of topology, assuming no previous publicity to the topic, and strikes speedily as much as contemporary advances within the zone, together with topological patience and hierarchical Morse complexes. Algorithms and knowledge constructions are provided while acceptable.
