Geometric Modeling : a Survey
Computer programs are being developed to aid the design of physical systems ranging from individual mechanical parts to entire buildings or ships. These efforts highlight the importance of computer models of three dimensional objects. Issues and alternatives in geometric modeling are discussed and illustrated with comparisons of 11 existing modelling systems, in particular coherently-structured models of polyhedral solids where the faces may be either planar or curved.

Scotland’s civil service overhaul holds lessons for enhancing national competitiveness
This semester focuses on Molecular Quantum Mechanics, or Quantum Chemistry, and Spectroscopy. The concepts we begin to learn here guide the behavior of all of chemistry and molecular biology and are thus crucial to you in whatever career you choose. The material is somewhat mathematical, but I do not wish for anyone to get hung up on the math. I will cover mathematical topics as we need them. If you need any additional help, please ask in class, ask in my office, or ask in math-help. The four (4
