Optimization is the science of making a best choice in the face of conflicting requirements. Any convex optimization problem has geometric interpretation. If a given optimization problem can be transformed to a convex equivalent, then this interpretive benefit is acquired. That is a powerful attraction: the ability to visualize geometry of an optimization problem. Conversely, recent advances in geometry hold convex optimization within their proofs' core. This book is about convex optimization, convex geometry (with particular attention to distance geometry), geometrical problems, and problems

Distance Sampling was first published in 1993 by Chapman and Hall, and was subsequently reprinted in 1999 by the authors.  It has now been superseded by a new book, Introduction to Distance Sampling, which is available from Oxford University Press. As a service for those not able to purchase copies of the new book, we have archived an electronic copy of the 1993 book at this web site.  However, we recommend use of the new book whenever possible.   To facilitate downloading, the book has been divided up into several files, approximately one for each chapter. Because the files

Neither an academic tome nor a prescriptive ’how to’ guide, "The Theory and Practice of Online Learning" is an illuminating collection of essays by practitioners and scholars active in the complex field of distance education.Distance education has evolved significantly in its 150 years of existence. For most of this time, it was an individual pursuit defined by infrequent postal communication. But recently, three more developmental generations have emerged, supported by television and radio, teleconferencing, and computer conferencing. The early 21st century has produced a fifth ge
