## Geometric ComputationThis book contains tutorial surveys and original research contributions in geometric computing, modeling, and reasoning. Highlighting the role of algebraic computation, it covers: surface blending, implicitization, and parametrization; automated deduction with Clifford algebra and in real geometry; and exact geometric computation. Basic techniques, advanced methods, and new findings are presented coherently, with many examples and illustrations. Using this book the reader will easily cross the frontiers of symbolic computation, computer aided geometric design, and automated reasoning. The book is also a valuable reference for people working in other relevant areas, such as scientific computing, computer graphics, and artificial intelligence. |
