summary An algorithm is described for displaying curved surfaces with their hidden parts removed. The algorithm calculates a number of points on a surface at which the surface disappears from view, and joins the points to form a piece-wise smooth `critical boundary'. With a knowledge of this critical boundary, the task of displaying the visible parts of the surface becomes simple
