Abstract:


    WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

    The lectures will assume a certain level of calculus back- ground and some familiarity with computer graphics display devices. People involved both managerially and technically with computer-aided design of three-dimensional objects with freeform surfaces should find the course useful.

    ABSTRACT

    Introductory concepts as well as some specialized current research topics will be presented at an intuitive, tutorial level. An introduction will cover basic interpolation and approximation curve forms leading to polynomial and spline representations. An overview of subdivision techniques and their relation to discrete splines will be given. Lectures describing extensions to surfaces and display algorithms will be included. The last lecture will be on the user interface requirements.
