This comprehensive, best-selling text focuses on the study of many different geometries--rather than a single geometry--and emphasizes practical applications. Designed to be a flexible teaching tool for a wide range of students (including math, education, or computer science majors), Smart's text features self-contained chapters organized so that instructors can cover as much or as little of each topic as they choose, from bare minimum one-section coverage to full-chapter coverage. Modern Geometries has earned a reputation for its logical progression of ideas, its well-constructed exercises, and its comprehensive coverage. In this edition, Smart covers the major new applied areas of computer graphics, and emphasizes matrices for transformations.
