Computational geometry in C. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 0912.68201
Cambridge: Cambridge Univ. Press. xiv, 376 p. (1998).
The first edition of the book has already been a valuable source for teaching courses as well as a reference book to basic geometry algorithms. The second edition extends the valuable way of the first edition. On the one hand, it extends the contents – topics, algorithms and exercises. On the other hand several items are improved in its description and in the algorithms. Having the first edition of the book, it is still valuable to also get the second edition of it. The balanced combination of careful descriptions, examples, algorithms and exercises makes it a pleasure to read the book and the use it for preparing course material.
