Contents

Practical methods for the representation of curves and surfaces, such as Bezier polynomials and splines, surface representations with tensor products and triangular decompositions.


Qualification Goals

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.

Prerequisites

None. The competences taught in the following modules are recommended: either Foundations of Mathematics and Linear Algebra I and Linear Algebra II or Basic Linear Algebra, either Analysis I and Analysis II or Basic Real Analysis, Numerical Analysis.
