By virtue of their special algebraic structures, Pythagorean-hodograph (PH) curves offer unique advantages for computer-aided design and manufacturing, robotics, motion control, path planning, computer graphics, animation, and related fields. This book offers a comprehensive and self-contained treatment of the mathematical theory of PH curves, including algorithms for their construction and examples of their practical applications. It emphasizes the interplay of ideas from algebra and geometry and their historical origins and includes many figures, worked examples, and detailed algorithm descriptions.

This volume contains the papers presented at 6th Conference on Geometric Modeling and Processing (GMP 2010) held in Castro Urdiales, Spain during June16–18,2010. GeometricModelingandProcessingisabiannualinternational conference series on geometric modeling, simulation and computing. Previously, GMPhasbeenheldinHongKong(2000),Saitama,Japan(2002),Beijing,China (2004), Pittsburgh, USA (2006) and Hangzhou, China (2008). GMP 2010 received a total of 30 submissions that were reviewed by three to four Program Committee members on average. While the number of subm- sions dropped signi?cantly from previous years, the quality did not and was still quite high overall. Based on the reviews received, the committee decided to - cept 20 papers for inclusion in the proceedings. Additionally, extended versions of selected papers were considered for a special issue of Computer-Aided - sign (CAD) and Computer-Aided Geometric Design (CAGD). The paper topics spanned a wide variety and include: – Solutions of transcendental equations – Volume parameterization – Smooth curves and surfaces – Isogeometric analysis – Implicit surfaces – Computational geometry Many people helped make this conference happen and we are grateful for their help. We would especially like to thank the Conference Chair, all of the authors who submitted papers, the ProgramCommittee members who reviewed the papers and all of the participants at the conference.

Der zweite Band dieser Einführung in die Analysis behandelt die Integrationstheorie von Funktionen einer Variablen, die mehrdimensionale Differentialrechnung und die Theorie der Kurven und Kurvenintegrale. Der im ersten Band begonnene moderne und klare Aufbau wird konsequent fortgesetzt. Dadurch wird ein tragfähiges Fundament geschaffen, das es erlaubt, interessante Anwenddungen zu behandeln, die zum Teil weit über den in der üblichen Lehrbuchliteratur behandelten Stoff hinausgehen.

All papers have been peer-reviewed. The main goal of this series of conferences is to bring together experts and young talented scientists from Bulgaria and abroad to discuss modern trends and to ensure exchange of views in various applications of mathematics in engineering, physics, economics, biology, etc. Keeping the main topics of the previous AMEE conferences as well as the big success of AMEE'07, this year’s 34th issue was again subject to the motto "Nonlinear phenomena - mathematical theory and environmental reality." The organizing Committee encouraged the participation of senior and postgraduate students and organized a separate youth session. The invited speakers organized two special sessions. Within the 34th Conference AMEE’08 a "Round Table - Presentations and Discussion - on Mathematics Education in Bachelor Degree Programs and in Master Degree Programs," Conference Tutorial "Introduction to Software Agents and Their Applications," and Workshop on Grid and Scientific Engineering Application (GRID&SEA) took place. The publishing, promotion and distribution the proceedings among the mathematical and related societies taking an interest in its topics is an integral part of the Conference.

Lunar Outpost provides a detailed account of the various technologies, mission architectures, medical requirements and training needed to return humans to the Moon within the next decade. It focuses on the means by which a lunar outpost will be constructed and also addresses major topics such as the cost of the enterprise and the roles played by private companies and individual countries. The return of humans to the surface of the Moon will be critical to the exploration of the solar system. The various missions are not only in pursuit of scientific knowledge, but also looking to extend human civilization, economic expansion, and public engagement beyond Earth. As well as NASA, China’s Project 921, Japan’s Aerospace Exploration Agency, Russia, and the European Space Agency are all planning manned missions to the Moon and, eventually, to Mars. The Ares-I and Ares-V are the biggest rockets since the Saturn V and there is much state-of-the-art technology incorporated into the design of Orion, the spacecraft that will carry a crew of four astronauts to the Moon. Lunar Outpost also describes the human factors, communications, exploration activities, and life support constraints of the missions.
