This lecture note covers the
following topics in surface modeling: b-splines, non-uniform rational b-splines,
physically based deformable surfaces, sweeps and generalized cylinders, offsets,
blending and filleting surfaces, Non-linear solvers and intersection problems,
Solid modeling: constructive solid geometry, boundary representation,
non-manifold and mixed-dimension boundary representation models, octrees,
Robustness of geometric computations, Interval methods, Finite and boundary
element discretization methods for continuum mechanics problems, Scientific
visualization, Variational geometry, Tolerances and Inspection methods.
