Highlights of the Second Edition:
Thirteen new chapters: Five on applications and others on collision detection, nearest neighbors in high-dimensional spaces, curve and surface reconstruction, embeddings of finite metric spaces, polygonal linkages, the discrepancy method, and geometric graph theoryThorough revisions of all remaining chaptersExtended coverage of computational geometry software, now comprising two chapters: one on the LEDA and CGAL libraries, the other on additional softwareTwo indices: An Index of Defined Terms and an Index of Cited AuthorsGreatly expanded bibliographies
