Publisher’s description (translated): Graphics is a field of computer science, which constantly grows and with vast applications in several sectors as engineering, natural sciences, medicine, industry, teaching, art, and amusament. Representation of objects considering its special characteristics is used to generate realistic models of these objects. Using these representations, methods allowing the description of an object by curves and surfaces can be found.
In this volume, numerical methods for the construction of curves, polynomial surfaces and splines in parametric form are presented. The theoretical part of this book is completed with the use of Matlab implementing the corresponding algorithms. Change of position, orientation and dimension of the representated objects is also studied.
