Overview

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.

About the Editor

Dr. Barnhill is chairman and professor of computer science at Arizona State University. He is one of the founders of the discipline, computer aided geometric design, and co-editor-in-chief of the journal Computer Aided Geometric Design.
