9780831132989: Geometric Modeling

Completely updated to include the most recent developments in the field, the third edition like the two previous editions, emphasizes clarity and thoroughness in the mathematical development of its subjects. It is written in a style that is free of jargon of special applications, while integrating the three important functions of geometric modeling: to represent elementary forms (curves, surfaces, and solids), to shape and assemble these into complex forms, and to determine geometric properties and relationships. With hundreds of illustrations, this unique book appeals to the readers visual and intuitive skills in a way that makes it easier to understand its more abstract concepts. Upper-division and graduate students, teachers, and professionals studying, teaching or practicing geometric modeling, 3D modeling, computational geometry, computer graphics applications, animation, CAD/CAM, and related subjects will find this to be a very valuable reference.

From the Publisher:

Now completely updated to include the most recent developments in the field, Geometric Modeling, Second Edition presents a comprehensive discussion of the core concepts of this subject. It describes and compares all the important mathematical methods for modeling curves, surfaces, and solids, and shows how to transform and assemble these elements into complex models. Written in a style free of jargon of special applications, this unique book focuses on the essence of geometric modeling and treats it as a discipline in its own right. It integrates the three important functions of geometric modeling: to represent elementary forms, to shape and assemble these into more complex forms, and to determine concomitant derivative geometric elements. With more than 300 illustrations, ths book appeals to the reader's visual and intuitive skills in a way that makes it easier to understand its more abstract concepts.

A comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of the indispensable core concepts of geometric modeling

Now completely updated to include the most recent developments in the field, Geometric Modeling, Second Edition presents a comprehensive discussion of the core concepts of this subject. It describes and compares all the important mathematical methods for modeling curves, surfaces, and solids, and shows how to transform and assemble these elements into complex models. Written in a style free of the jargon of special applications, this unique book focuses on the essence of geometric modeling and treats it as a discipline in its own right.

It integrates the three important functions of geometric modeling: to represent elementary forms (i.e., curves, surfaces, and solids), to shape and assemble these into more complex forms, and to determine concomitant derivative geometric elements (i.e., intersections, offsets, and fillets).

With more than 300 illustrations, Geometric Modeling, Second Edition appeals to the reader's visual and intuitive skills in a way that makes it easier to understand its more abstract concepts. An extensive bibliography lists many supporting works, directing the reader to more specialized treatments of this subject.

Geometric Modeling, Second Edition serves as an invaluable guide to computer graphics and CAD/CAM specialists, applications designers, scientific programmers, teachers, and students.
