and Surfaces for CAGD: A Practical Guide provides a unified
treatment of all the significant methods of curve and surface design,
and it is heavily focused on the movement from theory to application.
and surfaces are used for the computer description of parts such
as car bodies or hair driers; they are also used to represent scientific
data such as terrain models or fossil bones. This book covers the
basic theory behind all these applications and points out how theoretical
concepts lead to applications.
