About the Authors
  • As computers become the mainstay of most engineering design practices, there has been a growing interest in the theory of computational geometry and computer aided design. This book sets out the fundamental elements of this theory in a mathematically rigorous manner. Splines and Bézier curves are first tackled, leading to Bézier surfaces, triangulation and box splines. The final chapter is devoted to algebraic geometry and provides a firm theoretical basis for anyone wishing to seriously develop and investigate CAD systems. Written with a strong mathematical flavour, the volume will appeal to both engineers and mathematicians, as well as computer scientists.

    • Very current topic - includes material on computer graphics
    • First book to cover some recent mathematical applications for this field
    • Colour plates section illustrates the mathematical ideas very clearly
    • Attention to practical detail makes it suitable for engineers and computer scientists
