This textbook on discrete differential geometry is aimed at mathematics and physics students who have completed courses in calculus and linear algebra and need to master associated concepts in geometry processing, numerical simulations and applications for computer graphics and animation. Bobenko (mathematics, Technische U. Berlin) and Suris (mathematics, Zentrum Mathematik Technische U. Munchen) explain the nets of classical differential geometry before moving on to discretization principles for multidimensional nets and nets in quadrics, special classes of discrete surfaces, approximation and discrete complex analysis. Projective geometry, Lie geometry and incidence theorems are also discussed.
