Computational Geometry: Curve and Surface Modeling provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of computational geometry. This book discusses the geometric properties of parametric polynomial curves by using the theory of affine invariants for algebraic curves. Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of the objects studies in computational geometry, namely surfaces and curves. This text then explores the developments in the theory and application of spline functions, which began with cubic spline functions. Other chapters consider the mechanical background of the cubic spline functions, which is the wooden spline with small deflection. This book discusses as well that in mathematical lofting the information of a geometric shape is given by a set of data points, while in geometric design other ways of representations are available. The final chapter deals with the concepts in the theory of algebraic curves. This book is a valuable resource for mathematicians.
