The integral (or antiderivative) has long been used to determine the area under a curve, but finding the antiderivative can be a challenge. Other methods of integration can be cumbersome and give only a crude estimate of the actual area. Standard-slope integration is a fast, easy, and accurate method of numerical integration with results that are on par with those of classical integration methods.

Series: Fun with Numbers · Vector Graphics. Price: Free! Words: 7,010. Language: English. Published: October 9, 2014 by Time Travel Press. Category: Nonfiction » Computers and Internet » Graphics and design
While it is impossible to draw a circle with Bézier curves, it is quite possible to emulate one so well that, when viewed by human eyes, the drawing is indistinguishable from an actual circle. All you need to do is use the right value of the Bézier control points. This value is the radius of the circle multiplied by a constant known as the kappa. This book tells you the right value of the kappa.

Pierre de Fermat, the famous French Renaissance mathematician who gave us Fermat's Last Theorem, left no mathematical records so far as the English-speaking world is concerned. This is because he wrote in Latin. Here for the first time are two of his early works restoring the lost geometry treatise of Apollonius of Perga as well as Fermat's own expansion of plane loci into 3D.
