Bio:

  • SIGGRAPH 1984

    Richard F. Riesenfeld received a Ph.D. from the School of Computer and Information Science at Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York, in 1973. He is professor and chairman of computer science and head of the Computer-Aided Geometric Design Group (CAGD) in computer science at the University of Utah, where he joined the faculty in 1972. The B-spline method of curve and surface design, which he proposed in his doctoral thesis, is used by many industries in many countries. His major research focus for the last three years has been in discrete splines and their applications in an experimental CAGD system called Alpha-1. This system involves some new modeling ideas which are useful in combining computer graphics, geometry models and other models.

    Richard Riesenfeld is Chairman of Computer Science and Head of the Computer-Aided Geometric Design Group (CAGD) in Computer Science at the University of Utah, where he joined the faculty in 1972. He has published and consulted in the area of computer graphics and the academic issues and the industrial applications and motivations in the field. The B-spline method of curve and surface design, which he proposed in his doctoral thesis, is used by many industries in many countries. His major research focus for the last two years has been in discrete splines and their applications in an experimental CAGD system called Alpha-1. This system involves some new modelling ideas that are useful in combining computer graphics, geometry models, and other models.
