Owing to the recent development of the so nice techniques for visualization, while mathematicians can better explore these new mathematical objects, artists can use them to emphasize their intrinsic beauty, and create quite new sceneries. This volume, the content of the first conference of the European Society for Mathematics and the Arts (ESMA), held in Paris in 2010, gives an overview on some significant and beautiful recent works where maths and art, including architecture and music, are interwoven.
The book includes a wealth of mathematical illustrations from several basic mathematical fields including classical geometry, topology, differential geometry, dynamical systems. Here, artists and mathematicians alike elucidate the thought processes and the tools used to create their work
The Algorithms and Data Structures Symposium - WADS (formerly "Workshop on Algorithms and Data Structures") is intended as a forum for researchers in the area of design and analysis of algorithms and data structures. The 59 revised full papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 141 submissions. The papers present original research on the theory and application of algorithms and data structures in all areas, including combinatorics, computational geometry, databases, graphics, parallel and distributed computing.
The 19 revised full papers presented together with 3 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 57 submissions. The papers feature original research in the areas of algorithms and data structures, combinatorial algorithms, graph drawings and graph algorithms, parallel and distributed algorithms, string algorithms, computational geometry, graphs in bioinformatics and computational biology. The papers are organized in topical sections on bioinformatics algorithms, computational geometry and graph drawing, graph algorithms, and algorithm engineering.
