Computer graphics is important in many areas including engineering design architecture education and computer art and animation this book examines a wide array of current methods used in creating real looking objects in the computer one of the main aims of computer graphics curves and surfaces for computer graphics authors salomon . Algebraic surfaces o special case of implicit representation o fxyz is polynomial in x y z o quadrics degree of polynomial w 2 o render more efficiently than arbitrary surfaces o implicit form often used in computer graphics o how do we represent curves implicitly parametric form for curves o curves single parameter u e . Curves and surfaces for computer graphics with 207 figures 12 in full color david salomon emeritus department of computer science california state university northridge northridge ca 91330 8281 usa dsalomoncsunedu isbn 10 0 387 24196 5 e isbn 0 387 28452 4 printed on acid free paper. Parametric curves and surfaces are the essential tools for computer aided geometric design cagd and are thus used extensively in design and manufacturing systems and computer graphics they are important because they provide a great level of control over the final shape through a small set of control points and constraints while possessing
