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:

canal surfaces
discrete fairing
free form surfaces
highlight lines
involute curves
multisided patches
ray tracing
ruled surfaces
sculptured surfaces
segmentation methods
shape preservation
voronoi diagrams

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.
