Seminar in Numerical Analysis: Pieter Barendrecht (KAUST)

Splines in computer graphics and numerical methods

In this talk, we're going to take a closer look at the basics of both univariate and bivariate splines, including B├ęzier- and B-spline curves, box splines and subdivision surfaces. Next, we'll shift our focus to applications of smooth spline surfaces of arbitrary manifold topology within the realm of computer graphics. Finally, a couple of aspects and applications of splines in the context of numerical methods will be discussed. Expect more illustrations than equations, and in addition a couple of (interactive) live software demos!
