Book Description

This volume documents the results and presentations, related to aspects of geometric design, of the Second International Conference on Curves and Surfaces, held in Chamonix in 1993. The papers represent directions for future research and development in many areas of application. From the table of contents: - Object Oriented Spline Software - An Introduction to Pade Approximations - Zonoidal Surfaces - Projective Blossoms and Derivatives - Piecewise Polynomial Approximation of Spheres - A Geometrical Approach to Interpolation on Quadric Surfaces
