Summary "Focussing on the manipulation and representation of geometrical objects, this book explores the application of geometry to computer graphics and computer-aided design (CAD)." "Over 300 exercises are included, some new to this edition, and many of which encourage the reader to implement the techniques and algorithms discussed through the use of a computer package with graphing and computer algebra capabilities. A dedicated website also offers further resources and links to other useful websites." "Designed for students of computer science and engineering as well as of mathematics, the book provides a foundation in the extensive applications of geometry in real-world situations."--Jacket
