Devoted to the control of all rational curves and surfaces in view of their applications to computer science, CAD, CAGD and CAM. Introduces and analyzes the new concept of massic vectors to dominate all rational curves and surfaces, including Bezier curves and surfaces. The algorithmic and geometrical aspects are examined and methods for determining massic polygons and nets, especially for conics and quadrics, are developed. Contains numerous examples of constructing and displaying these curves.
