NURBS for Curve & Surface Design : From Projective Geometry to Practical Use

Gerald E. Farin

Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines have become the de facto standard in CAD/CAM and computer graphics. This well-known book covers NURBS from their geometric beginnings to their industrial applications. The second edition incorporates new results and a chapter on Pythagorean curves, a development that shows promise in applications such as NC machining or robot motion control. Includes more than fifty new figures.
