This is background research for my own book, “Practical Math for Programmers”, in which I require sufficient proof that the math is actually used in production to include the topic in the book.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3722233.post-54011409091912701062023-10-29T22:15:39.445-05:002023-10-29T22:15:39.445-05:00(Bill here) The book discusses actual applications...(Bill here) The book discusses actual applications in passing as motivation. Not sure if that counts. Here is a quote that I think addresses this- in the Summary part of the Art Gallery Chapter: <br /><br />You now have all the code necessary to solve the core of the art gallery problem, including methods for handling real-world constraints such as limited budgets and effective range for sensors. We've also discussed the power of the Triangle library and combined it with Shapely and Network X to model the problem with both a geometric and graph representation. Perhaps most important of all, you should now be comforable explaining the Art Gallery Problem theory and discussing the practical constraings applied within the applications.

Or is the extent of the applicability python code in the book? I don't doubt the author, I would just like a means to verify that it is actually used, and not just in the book or academic papers.j2kunhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/08041921049916424212noreply@blogger.com
