Description for Space-Filling Curves Hardcover. Linking the differing techniques deployed in describing space-filling curves to their corresponding algorithms, this book introduces SFCs as tools in scientific computing, focusing in particular on the representation of SFCs and on the resulting algorithms. Series: Texts in Computational Science and Engineering. Num Pages: 298 pages, biography. BIC Classification: PBKS; PDE; UYAM. Category: (P) Professional & Vocational. Dimension: 161 x 243 x 21. Weight in Grams: 592.

­The present book provides an introduction to using space-filling curves (SFC) as tools in scientific computing. Special focus is laid on the representation of SFC and on resulting algorithms. For example, grammar-based techniques are introduced for traversals of Cartesian and octree-type meshes, and arithmetisation of SFC is explained to compute SFC mappings and indexings.


The locality properties of SFC are discussed in detail, together with their importance for algorithms. Templates for parallelisation and cache-efficient algorithms are presented to reflect the most important applications of SFC in scientific computing. Special attention is also given to the interplay of adaptive mesh refinement and ... Read more

Reviews for Space-Filling Curves
From the reviews: “This book concentrates on low-dimensional, two or three at most, curves used for linearly ordering points on the 2D or 3D grid with applications in computer graphics and data structures. … Each section ends with indications for further reading and exercises. This is a new book in the field of computer science which should be a ... Read more
