Computer Aided Geometric Design and Modeling for Curve and Surface Representations

Speaker:  Brian A. Barsky – Berkeley, CA, United States
Topic(s):  Graphics and Computer-Aided Design


Computer aided geometric design and modeling is concerned with the mathematical techniques for the representation of curves and surfaces in the computer for image display and object fabrication.   Drawing on mathematics from geometry, various approaches have been developed to provide users with the facility of precisely specifying shape.    This lecture  will focus on a variety of techniques such as Hermite interpolation, interpolatory splines, tensed splines, Bézier curves and surfaces, B-splines, ß-splines, Coons patches, tensor product forms, lofted patches, blending function methods, Boolean sum schemes, and various subdivision methods.
