- Course Description: The course deals with the representation, design, analysis, processing and visualization of shape information used in a variety of fields of science and engineering.
- Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course: Geometric modeling is the discipline that underlies many computer science and engineering fields such as vision, graphics, CAD/CAM, mechanical and industrial engineering. The course is most useful for a large variety of students within the College of Engi
- What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service? Geometric modeling is a major research area within the Computer Science & Engineering Department. It also supports other research groups in vision, VLSI, networks, animation, AI and software engineering.
- Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times? Yes, it has. It has been offered at least three times.
- What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.) PhD in computer science or math or engineering, plus research experience in the field.
- Objectives: To obtain a basic understanding of the representation, design, analysis, processing and visualization of shapes and forms as used in engineering and various scientific disciplines.
- Learning Outcomes: Students will become familiar with the major algorithms and technologies to design and process shapes for purposes like web design, manufacturing, animation, geographic information system, image analysis and computer graphics.
- Major Topics: Traditional curves, Bezier curves and surfaces, B-spline curves and surfaces, rational curves and surfaces, Coons' patches, Gordon surfaces, N-sided patches, recursive division techniques, volumetric representations, algorithm design and analysis
