This book provides a solid and uniform derivation of the various properties Bezier and B-spline representations have, and shows the beauty of the underlying rich mathematical structure. The book focuses on the core concepts of Computer Aided Geometric Design and provides a clear and illustrative presentation of the basic principles, as well as a treatment of advanced material including multivariate splines, some subdivision techniques and constructions of free form surfaces with arbitrary smoothness. The text is beautifully illustrated with many excellent figures to emphasize the geometric constructive approach of this book.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

This excellent book gives a well-focused introduction to the essential concepts of computer aided geometric design. The authors provide a solid and unified derivation of the various properties of Bezier and B-spline representations. These piecewise polynomial representations have become the major tool to handle curves and surfaces in various applications, such as computer-aided design and computer graphics. In addition, the authors discuss a number of advanced concepts, including multivariate splines, certain subdivision techniques, and free-form surface splines. [...]

The material presented in this book is visualized by many carefully prepared figures, which will be of great help for understanding the theoretical concepts. In addition, the authors have provided a number of useful exercises (without solutions). The book can be used as a textbook for courses at the graduate and intermediate undergraduate levels, for students of mathematics, computer science and engineering, and for self study. It will also be a useful reference book for researchers and practitioners in the field of computer aided geometric design and its various applications.

Bert Juttler, AMS 2004

"The book provides a clear and illustrative presentation of the basic principles in computer-aided geometric design. It is addressed mainly to the students and teachers in mathematics, computer science and engineering sciences. At the end of each chapter several problems are proposed." (Dana Petcu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1033 (8), 2004)

"The book provides a basic presentation of the most important techniques in Computer-aided Geometric Design. The illustrative style gives a clear understanding of the subject and makes it well suited for students or lecturers in mathematics and computer sciences. ... Each chapter comes with a small supplement of exercises." (H. G. Feichtinger, Monatshefte fur Mathematik, Vol. 142 (3), 2004)

"Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD) deals with the algorithmic aspects of curves and surfaces. ... the book definitely serves as a solid introduction to recent literature on CAGD. It is based on courses taught by the authors, and the book shows that the material has been thoroughly tested and revised in classrooms. ... The book is highly recommended, both as a textbook for courses on geometric computing and as a self-contained introduction to the field of Computer Aided Geometric Design." (G. Vegter, Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde, Vol. 7 (2), 2006)
