Describing the shapes of real objects for the purposes of engineering, architecture, medicine, and a host of other disciplines often requires complicated mathematics and subtle computer techniques. With contributions from eminent authorities in the field, this wide-ranging volume describes the latest research in computer-aided surface geometry and design techniques currently being used and developed. Topics include: The geometry of helical canal surface, optimized triangulation of parametric surfaces, simple singularities in surface-surface intersections, and the volume function, among others. With its technical richness and comprehensive treatment of the subject, the book will appeal to students and researchers working in CAD, CAM, architecture, medical modeling, molecular modeling, geography, cartography, and landscape design.
