computer aided geometric design
Summary: This lecture surveys some of the insights, algorithm enhancements, and practical new capabilities that algebraic geometry has contributed to the field of computer aided geometric design. Specifically, the lecture discusses new methods for finding the implicit equations of rational surfaces and planar rational curves, examines which curves that arise in modelling can be parametrized, and looks at some considerations when using algebraic methods in floating point arithmetic.
