Item description for Convex and Discrete Geometry (Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften) by Peter M. Gruber...
Convex and Discrete Geometry is an area of mathematics situated between analysis, geometry and discrete mathematics with numerous relations to other areas. The book gives an overview of major results, methods and ideas of convex and discrete geometry and its applications. Besides being a graduate-level introduction to the field, it is a practical source of information and orientation for convex geometers. It should also be of use to people working in other areas of mathematics and in the applied fields.
