Course Texbooks

The lectures will be based on a new book titled “Geometric Modeling with Splines” by Elaine Cohen, Rich Riesenfeld and Gershon Elber. Three copies of the book are in the CS library. Several useful books (no need to buy them) are:

  • “Curves and Surfaces for Computer Aided Geometric Design, G. Farin”, Academic Press, Inc. Second Edition, 1990
  • “Fundamentals of Computer Aided Geometric Design”, J. Hoschek and D. Lasser, English Translation A K Peters, 1993
  • “An Introduction to Splines for Use in Computer Graphics and Geometric Modeling”, R. Bartels, J. Beatty and B. Barsky, Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, 1987
  • “Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces”, M. P. DoCarmo, Prentice-Hall, 1976
