About this book


In order to capture the essential features of computer graphics, fundamental methods, concepts, and techniques have been integrated into generalized models through a process known as modeling. This volume outlines the progress made in computer graphic modeling and presents previously unpublished results and surveys which will help readers better understand the concepts and applications of this fascinating subject.
