Geometry Processing for Design and Manufacturingby Robert E. Barnhill
Pub. Date: 01/01/1992
Topics in geometry processing have many important applications, such as surface-surface intersections and offset surfaces, which are useful for manufacturing (automotive, aeronautical, etc.). Leading experts have written papers included in this book that highlight the most recent methods fundamental for geometric modeling. A background in advanced calculus and some knowledge of applications is suggested.
