A mathematical overview of the generations and applications of three- dimensional geometric computer models, explaining the mathematical relationships between different types and implementations of modeling systems and examining the practical limitations of available software. Concentrates on those situations arising from the simultaneous use of half-space and boundary representations. For computer scientists, mathematicians, and design engineers, including students interested in modeling geometric objects in three-dimensional space. Annotation c.
