Programming for special effects calls for various uncomplicated geometric operations. the obvious method to application those is usually inefficient or numerical volatile. This ebook describes the simplest ways to those user-friendly approaches, delivering the programmer with geometric strategies in a kind that may be without delay integrated into this system being written. it's without delay appropriate to special effects, but in addition to different programming initiatives the place geometric operations are required

Innovative Lernsysteme: Kompetenzentwicklung mit Blended by Annette Kuhlmann, Werner Sauter (auth.) PDF

Die aktuellen Entwicklungen in Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft (Globalisierung, E-Business, net 2. zero) haben zwingend auch den Bedarf nach innovativen Lernkonzepten zur Folge. Dabei wird Wissensvermittlung und Qualifikation mit E-Learning zunehmend in die Eigenverantwortung der Lernenden verlagert. Der Bedarf nach Kompetenzentwicklung im Netz wächst.

Formal Methods and Software Engineering: 16th International by Stephan Merz, Jun Pang (eds.) PDF

This publication constitutes the refereed court cases of the sixteenth foreign convention on Formal Engineering tools, ICFEM 2014, held in Luxembourg, Luxembourg, in November 2014. The 28 revised complete papers offered have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from seventy three submissions. The papers hide a variety of themes within the quarter of formal equipment and software program engineering and are dedicated to advancing the cutting-edge of utilising formal tools in perform.
