This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 11th IMA International Conference on the Mathematics of Surfaces, held in Loughborough, UK in September 2005.

The 28 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. Among the topics addressed are Voronoi diagrams, linear systems, curvatures on meshes, approximate parameterization, condition numbers, pythagorean hodographs, artifacts in B-spline surfaces, Bézier surfaces of minimal energy, line subdivision, subdivision surfaces, level sets and symmetry, the topology of algebraic surfaces, embedding graphs in manifolds, recovery of 3D shape from shading, finding optimal feedrates for machining, and improving of range data.
