Description

Two new volumes of carefully refereed and edited papers on the most current developments in the theory and applications of curves and surfaces.These two volumes contain a selection of papers presented at the Saint-Malo Conference on Approximation Theory in July 1999. Each contains several invited survey papers written by experts in the field, along with contributed research papers. They will be of great interest to mathematicians, engineers, and computer scientists working in the fields of Approximation Theory, Computer-Aided Geometric Design (CAGD), Computer Graphics, Numerical Analysis, CAD/CAM, and application areas.

Curve and Surface Design includes the following topics:

B-bases
canal surfaces
conics
curvature
discrete fairing
free form surfaces
G2-splines

Review quote

The series of books edited or co-edited by Professor Larry Schumaker of Vanderbilt University and his international colleagues has achieved a high level of quality in the fields of Approximation Theory, Wavelets, and Computer-Aided Design. These books should be in every university library. Contributors to these volumes are among the leading researchers in their fields, and the books provide authoritative sources for current theory and applications in these areas.
