Review of some basic ideas
The purpose of this chapter is to review some of the standard notation and concepts that underlie the material to be presented later. These are the ideas of mathematics and of numerical mathematics. They are important from a computeraided design (CAD) point of view because the only way in which we can persuade a computer system to deal with geometry for us is by reducing it to a set of numbers which can then be stored and manipulated.
