This is the 1st ebook on a newly rising box of discrete differential geometry delivering an exceptional strategy to entry this intriguing sector. It presents discrete equivalents of the geometric notions and techniques of differential geometry, comparable to notions of curvature and integrability for polyhedral surfaces. The conscientiously edited number of essays offers a full of life, multi-facetted advent to this rising field.
