summary 
Focusing on the mathematical techniques for the representation, analysis and synthesis of 'shape information' by computers. There is a discussion of splines and related means for defining composite curves and 'patched' surfaces, and coverage of both parametric and nonparametric techniques. The book is primarily concerned with the mathematics of the various methods. A good introductory text to surface modeling
