Practical methods for the representation of curves and surfaces, such as Bezier polynomials and splines, surface representations with tensor products and triangular decompositions.
The students shall
- recognize that non-mathematical requirements, such as manageability, can influence the selection of function classes in practical use,
- learn to recognize and assess the relevance of computer graphic methods for practical problems, e.g. in engineering, and to acquire the tools to solve these problems,
- to recognize the relations of CAGD to other areas of mathematics, such as numerical analysis or differential geometry,
- practice mathematical working methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof techniques),
- improve their oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussion.
