SIREV Book Review
Subdivision surfaces permit a designer to specify the approximate form of a surface defining an object and to refine and smooth the form to obtain a more useful or attractive version of the surface.
A considerable amount of mathematical theory is required to understand the characteristics of the resulting surfaces, and this book
Introduction to the Mathematics of Subdivision Surfaces is excellent preparation for reading more advanced texts that delve more deeply into special questions of regularity. The authors provide exercises and projects at the end of each chapter.
Course material, including solutions to the exercises, is available on an associated web page.
Audience
This book is written for mathematically inclined Ph.D. students in computer science and researchers with advanced graduatelevel expertise.
