The growing importance of animation and 3D design has caused computer-aided geometric design (CAGD) to be of interest to a wide audience of programmers and designers.
This interactive software/book tutorial teaches fundamental CAGD concepts and discusses the growing number of applications in such areas as geological modeling, molecular modeling, commercial advertising, and animation. Using interactive examples and animations to illustrate the mathematical concepts, this hands-on multimedia tutorial enables users without a substantial mathematical background to quickly gain intuition about CAGD.
Application oriented readers will find this animated tutorial presentation more accessible than the standard formal texts on the subject.
