CAGD - Computer Aided Geometric Design (0368.4403)

Dr. Adi Levin

Prerequisites: Numerical analysis, programming skills. Having taken the course Computer Graphics is an advantage but not a requirement.

The course is geared towards graduate students in applied mathematics and in computer science. Third-year undergrads are welcome.

The students will learn and implement mathematical methods for the representation and manipulation of 3D geometric models. The following topics will be covered:

The weekly assignments will involve programming. See the submission instructions.

The weekly assignments are available online.

Lecture notes are available for lecture #8 on subdivision curves. You can also download a PowerPoint presentation that I used for the introduction to subdivision curves & surfaces.

A zip file containing all of the possible final assignments an be downloaded. You will need WinZip to unzip it.
