Computer Aided techniques, Applications, Systems and tools for Geometric Modeling are extremely useful in a number of academic and industrial settings. Specifically, Computer Aided Geometric Modeling (CAGM) plays a significant role in the construction of - signing and manufacturing of various objects. In addition to its cri- cal importance in the traditional fields of automobile and aircraft manufacturing, shipbuilding, and general product design, more - cently, the CAGM methods have also proven to be indispensable in a variety of modern industries, including computer vision, robotics, medical imaging, visualization, and even media. This book aims to provide a valuable source, which focuses on - terdisciplinary methods and affiliate research in the area. It aims to provide the user community with a variety of Geometric Modeling techniques, Applications, systems and tools necessary for various real life problems in the areas such as: Font Design Medical Visualization Scientific Data Visualization Archaeology Toon Rendering Virtual Reality Body Simulation It also aims to collect and disseminate information in various dis- plines including: Curve and Surface Fitting Geometric Algorithms Scientific Visualization Shape Abstraction and Modeling Intelligent CAD Systems Computational Geometry Solid Modeling v Shape Analysis and Description Industrial Applications The major goal of this book is to stimulate views and provide a source where researchers and practitioners can find the latest dev- opments in the field of Geometric Modeling.
