Reviews - What do customers think about MESH: A Journey Through Discrete Geometry (Springer VideoMATH)?
The story of Geometry like you've never seen before. Feb 22, 2008
It's amazing on how well this film is put together. It has a great way of explaining, what at times seems like such complicated material that would be over most people's heads, shown in such a creative way that is easily understood by anyone watching it. If you don't find yourself following the concepts by definition you'll find yourself being hypnotized by its visual stunning CG eye candy, and animation. Just ask my 4 year old nephew who has been asking to watch it again. Though he may not completely understand the film, it is truly an engaging and entertaining piece of work that really gets your gears turning.
