|Geometric Foundations for Graphics & Visualization
|3 - credits
This course will focus on mathematical tools, geometric modeling techniques, and fundamental algorithms, that are relevant to graphics, visualization, and other visual computing areas. The goal is to provide graduate students a comprehensive knowledge on geometric concepts and demonstrate the significance of these mathematical tools and geometric algorithms in graphics and relevant areas. Course topics include geometric algorithms for both polygonal and curved objects, theory of parametric and implicit representations, modeling methods of curves, surfaces, and solids, in-depth spline theory, rudiments of wavelet theory and multi-resolution shape representations, differential geometry fundamentals, and other sophisticated topics and latest advances in the field.
