The Modern C# Challenge

By: Rod Stephens

Overview of this book

C# is a multi-paradigm programming language. The Modern C# Challenge covers with aspects of the .NET Framework such as the Task Parallel Library (TPL) and CryptoAPI. It also encourages you to explore important programming trade-offs such as time versus space or simplicity. There may be many ways to solve a problem and there is often no single right way, but some solutions are definitely better than others. This book has combined these solutions to help you solve real-world problems with C#. In addition to describing programming trade-offs, The Modern C# Challenge will help you build a useful toolkit of techniques such as value caching, statistical analysis, and geometric algorithms. By the end of this book, you will have walked through challenges in C# and explored the .NET Framework in order to develop program logic for real-world applications.

Chapter 2. Geometry

This chapter includes geometric problems. Some ask you to calculate values such as π or the area below a curve. Others demonstrate useful techniques such as Monte Carlo algorithms. Finally, some are directly useful if you need to perform geometric operations such as drawing arrowheads or finding intersections between line segments.

Many of these problems have intuitive graphical purposes. In those cases, the solutions may include graphical components that draw the problem and its solution. The graphics code usually isn't necessary to solve the problems, however; it just makes visualizing the solution easier, so I won't describe that code in detail. Download the solutions to see all of the details.
