Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since their first appearance in 1974, subdivision algorithms for generating surfaces of arbitrary topology have gained widespread popularity in computer graphics and are being evaluated in engineering applications. This development was complemented by ongoing efforts to develop appropriate mathematical tools for a thorough analysis, and today, many of the fascinating properties of subdivision are well understood. This book summarizes the current knowledge on the subject. It contains both meanwhile classical results as well as brand-new, unpublished material, such as a new framework for constructing C^2-algorithms. The focus of the book is on the development of a comprehensive mathematical theory, and less on algorithmic aspects. It is intended to serve researchers and engineers - both new to the beauty of the subject - as well as experts, academic teachers and graduate students or, in short, anybody who is interested in the foundations of this flourishing branch of applied geometry.

Synopsis:

Since subdivision surfaces have found numerous applications in mathematical modeling and have become ubiquitous in computer graphics, a rich literature has developed over the last 25 years, illuminating various aspects of the underlying mathematical framework. An intriguing and mathematically interesting subject has thus been developed, albeit not in a cohesive and easily accessible form, but distributed over many papers and communicated in different, at times ambiguous notations.

The goal of this book is to provide engineers and mathematicians with a careful, cohesive exposition of subdivision surfaces that, concerning the core issues, can claim to be complete, and puts forth a consistent notation and a uniform view of the subject.

While practitioners will find a deeper explanation of some of the restrictions and strengths of subdivision algorithms, academics may find short proofs, surprising examples and clear definitions convenient for reference.
