Editorial Reviews

Review

"An excellent introduction to the field is given here, including a general motivation and usage cases beyond simple graphics rendering or interaction." from the ACM Reviews by William Fahle, University of Texas at Dallas, USA

Customer Reviews

This book is pretty damn good.
Yulun Wu
The material is explained in details with good examples, which makes it easy and enjoyable to read (yes, enjoyable!).
R. Abraham
I'd rather have 2 times the size of the book than having to read it 4 times until I get what the authors mean.

Format: Hardcover
This is a very well written book and covers a wide range of computational geometry problems. It is a very good introduction/overview to computational geometry. I would have preferred more detail, specifically code examples. This is a good book to gain an understanding of the topic but not so good if you are actually trying to implement the concepts in code or make the best use existing code libraries.

This is a computer science textbook for undergraduates. Lots of "real world" uses for computational geometry to egg-on the unmotivated. Not so good for those that ARE already motivated.

The text glosses over basic tasks such as "whether a point lies to the left or right of a directed line" (page 4) with the expectation that some unnamed library function will do this. For me, not so. Moreover I'd would have liked to read a geometric proof of such things. The foundations are left out, yet elsewhere they waste space to give us Pythagoras' Theorem.

This is the standard text book for CG, and it nicely introduces us to a lot of concepts. But, unfortunately it is not the best book I have read. Most of the examples albeit few, does not make much sense. The algorithms discussed sometimes cannot be grasped. I often went online to read more about the subject to understand the topics. This also could mean that my grasping of the subject is low :), but that should not matter as long as the material is explained clearly.

This book is a great all-purpose volume to own. Covers lots of topics in a very intuitive way. I highly recommend it.

It is a joy to read and review this book -- the exposition is crystal clear; the writing style is warm and engaging (not too terse and not too verbose), conveying understanding and not just stating facts, theorems, and algorithms; the graphics are great (numerous richly detailed illustrations); the topics hit the heart of computational geometry; the historical remarks help set context; and the book is beautifully typeset and printed on high quality acid free paper.
