9781441905994: Classical Topics in Discrete Geometry (CMS Books in Mathematics)

Geometry is a classical core part of mathematics which, with its birth, marked the beginning of the mathematical sciences. Thus, not surprisingly, geometry has played a key role in many important developments of mathematics in the past, as well as in present times. While focusing on modern mathematics, one has to emphasize the increasing role of discrete mathematics, or equivalently, the broad movement to establish discrete analogues of major components of mathematics. In this way, the works of a number of outstanding mathema- cians including H. S. M. Coxeter (Canada), C. A. Rogers (United Kingdom), and L. Fejes-T oth (Hungary) led to the new and fast developing eld called discrete geometry. One can brie y describe this branch of geometry as the study of discrete arrangements of geometric objects in Euclidean, as well as in non-Euclidean spaces. This, as a classical core part, also includes the theory of polytopes and tilings in addition to the theory of packing and covering. D- crete geometry is driven by problems often featuring a very clear visual and applied character. The solutions use a variety of methods of modern mat- matics, including convex and combinatorial geometry, coding theory, calculus of variations, di erential geometry, group theory, and topology, as well as geometric analysis and number theory.

From the Back Cover :

About the author: Karoly Bezdek received his Dr.rer.nat.(1980) and Habilitation (1997) degrees in mathematics from the Eötvös Loránd University, in Budapest and his Candidate of Mathematical Sciences (1985) and Doctor of Mathematical Sciences (1994) degrees from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. He is the author of more than 100 research papers and currently he is professor and Canada Research Chair of mathematics at the University of Calgary. About the book: This multipurpose book can serve as a textbook for a semester long graduate level course giving a brief introduction to Discrete Geometry. It also can serve as a research monograph that leads the reader to the frontiers of the most recent research developments in the classical core part of discrete geometry. Finally, the forty-some selected research problems offer a great chance to use the book as a short problem book aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as researchers. The text is centered around four major and by now classical problems in discrete geometry. The first is the problem of densest sphere packings, which has more than 100 years of mathematically rich history. The second major problem is typically quoted under the approximately 50 years old illumination conjecture of V. Boltyanski and H. Hadwiger. The third topic is on covering by planks and cylinders with emphases on the affine invariant version of Tarski's plank problem, which was raised by T. Bang more than 50 years ago. The fourth topic is centered around the Kneser-Poulsen Conjecture, which also is approximately 50 years old. All four topics witnessed very recent breakthrough results, explaining their major role in this book.

Review :

From the reviews:

“The present volume actually surveys packing and covering problems in Euclidean space and close cousins. ... Bezdek ... surveys the state of the art, best results, and outstanding conjectures for a host of problems. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Academic audiences, upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty.” (D. V. Feldman, Choice, Vol. 48 (5), January, 2011)

“The book is intended for graduate students interested in discrete geometry. The book provides a road map to the state-of-the-art of several topics in discrete geometry. It can also serve as a textbook for a graduate level course or a seminar. Additionally, the book is extremely current, with many references to as late as 2009–2010 publications.” (Alex Bogomolny, The Mathematical Association of America, August, 2010)

“This very interesting monograph contains a selection of topics in discrete geometry, mainly those on which the author and his collaborators have worked. ... The many conjectures and problems to be found throughout the text will serve as an inspiration to many discrete geometers.” (Konrad Swanepoel, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1207, 2011)
