UE Geometric modelling

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :

Description

The aim of this course is to present spline curves and surfaces: they are routinely used in geometrical design softwares, such as CATIA or MAYA. They have many applications: 3D design of prototypes, medical imaging, image synthesis, geographical imaging.

Contents:

  • Affine and differential geometry basics
  • Curves: Bezier, Bernstein polynoms, B-spline
  • Surfaces: Bezier, spline interpolation and spline approximation
  • Applications

Prerequisites

L3 geometry

Targeted skills

Interpolation and approximation of curves and surfaces using B-splines : theory and algorithmic implementation.
