Computer Aided Geometric Design

Abstract

Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD) is a branch of computational geometry that studies methods and algorithms for the mathematical description of shape. 3D models are central in many applied fields from animation film and TV to more practical areas such as engineering, architecture and medical image processing.

Content

This lecture is a comprehensive introduction to the techniques needed to derive 3D models. The aim is to give a theoretical understanding of these techniques together with programming expertise required to implement them.

Mode

Lecture slides and accompanying videos will be provided via the teaching centre and/or local webservers. Students need to check email for updates and additional information.
