Rövid leírás:

Unifies discrete and computational geometry by using forbidden patterns of points to characterize many of its problems.

Hosszú leírás:
This book surveys the mathematical and computational properties of finite sets of points in the plane, covering recent breakthroughs on important problems in discrete geometry, and listing many open problems. It unifies these mathematical and computational views using forbidden configurations, which are patterns that cannot appear in sets with a given property, and explores the implications of this unified view. Written with minimal prerequisites and featuring plenty of figures, this engaging book will be of interest to undergraduate students and researchers in mathematics and computer science. Most topics are introduced with a related puzzle or brain-teaser. The topics range from abstract issues of collinearity, convexity, and general position to more applied areas including robust statistical estimation and network visualization, with connections to related areas of mathematics including number theory, graph theory, and the theory of permutation patterns. Pseudocode is included for many algorithms that compute properties of point sets.

'David Eppstein has managed to unify a huge swath of research on planar point sets through monotone properties and forbidden configurations. For example, finding grid points that avoid the obstacle of a 3-point line is a century-old problem still not entirely resolved. The author's unification naturally uncovers research lacuna, several of which he fills, while others are formulated as sharp new open problems. This rare synthesis of previous work will reinvigorate and redirect the field.' Joseph O'Rourke, Smith College, Massachusetts
