This is an English version of the book in two volumes, entitled “Keijo Shori Kogaku (1), (2)” (Nikkan Kogyo Shinbun Co.) written in Japanese. The purpose of the book is a unified and systematic exposition of the wealth of research results in the field of mathematical representation of curves and surfaces for computer aided geometric design that have appeared in the last thirty years.
The material for the book started life as a set of notes for computer aided geometric design courses which I had at the graduate schools of both computer science, the university of Utah in U.S.A. and Kyushu Institute of Design in Japan. The book has been used extensively as a standard text book of curves and surfaces for students, practical engineers and researchers.
With the aim of systematic exposition, the author has arranged the book in 8 chapters:
Chapter 0: The significance of mathematical representations of curves and surfaces is explained and historical research developments in this field are reviewed.
Chapter 1: Basic mathematical theories of curves and surfaces are reviewed and summarized.
Chapter 2: A classical interpolation method, the Lagrange interpolation, is discussed. Although its use is uncommon in practice, this chapter is helpful in understanding Chaps. 4 and 6.
Chapter 3: This chapter discusses the Coons surface in detail, which is one of the most important contributions in this field.
Chapter 4: The fundamentals of spline functions, spline curves and surfaces are discussed in some detail.
Chapter 5: This chapter discusses the so-called Bezier curve and surface which are frequently used in practical applications.
Chapter 6: This chapter deals with Â-spline curves and surfaces, which are more general than the Bezier ones. Special emphasis is placed on this chapter in this book because B-spline curves and surfaces are expected to play an important role in the future.
Chapter 7: The last chapter discusses the rational polynomial curves which are capable of representing conic sections exactly.
The present author has learnt much from the published work of others, particularly from late Prof. S. A. Coons, Prof. M. Hosaka (Tokyo Denki University), Prof. A. R. Forrest (University of East Anglia), Prof. R. F. Riesen-feld (University of Utah), Prof. I. D. Faux (Cranfleld Institute of Technology),
Prof. M. J. Pratt (Cranfield Institute of Technology) and he has drawn extensively on them. He has done his best to give credit where it is due.
Finally, the author’s thanks go to Mr. Harold Solomon for the translation from the original Japanese.
