Reconciliation of Geometry and Perception in RadiationPhysics approaches the topic of projective geometry as itapplies to radiation physics and attempts to negate its negativereputation. With an original outlook and transversal approach, thebook emphasizes common geometric properties and their potentialtransposition between domains. After defining both radiation andgeometric properties, authors Benoit and Pierre Beckers explain thenecessity of reconciling geometry and perception in fields likearchitectural and urban physics, which are notable for theregularity of their forms and the complexity of their interactions.
About the Author
Benoit Beckers is Associate Professor at Compiègne University of Technology, France. His research focuses on solar radiation and natural light in architectural and urban projects, on geometrical methods in numerical simulation and on the perception of waves in their physical and cultural environment.
Pierre Beckers is Emeritus Professor at the University of Liège, Belgium. His research is principally conducted within the framework of the finite element method, computer graphics, data visualization, and computational geometry.
