## Solid geometry

In mathematics , solid **geometry** was the traditional name for the **geometry** of three-dimensional Euclidean space — for practical purposes the kind of space we live in. It was developed following the development of plane **geometry** . Stereometry deals with the measurements of volumes

## Nose cone design

Given the problem of the aerodynamic design of the nose **cone** section of any vehicle or body meant to travel through a compressible fluid medium (such as a rocket or aircraft , missile or bullet ), an important problem is the determination of the nose **cone** geometrical shape for optimum

## List of books in computational geometry

This is a list of books in computational **geometry** . There are two major, largely nonoverlapping categories: Combinatorial computational **geometry** , which deals with collections of discrete objects or defined in discrete terms: points, lines, polygons, polytopes, etc., and algorithms of discrete

## Conformal geometry

In mathematics , conformal **geometry** is the study of the set of angle-preserving ( conformal ) transformations on a space. In two real dimensions, conformal **geometry** is precisely the **geometry** of Riemann surfaces . In more than two dimensions, conformal **geometry** may refer either to the study

## Descriptive geometry

from any position in space. All images are represented on a two-dimensional surface. Descriptive **geometry** uses the image-creating technique of imaginary, parallel projectors emanating from an imaginary object and intersecting an imaginary plane of projection at right angles. The cumulative
