    The surface appropriate for a given problem depends on the application; there is no universal surface form. The numerous applications of surface methods include modeling physical phenomena (e.g., combustion) and designing objects such as airplanes and cars. In addition to these 3D surfaces, there are interesting 4D "surfaces" such as temperature as a function of the three spatial variables. Becaus... View full abstract»

    The March 1982 issue of IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications was devoted to solid modeling. The lead article in that issuel summarized the history of the field and its status as of late 1981; this article is an update to the 1982 article. Here, we shall note the proliferation of commercial systems over the past two years, discuss changes in system organization, and summarize applications suppor... View full abstract»

    When primitive parametric surfaces are combined and modified inferactively to form complex intersecting surfaces, it becomes important to find the curves of intersection. One must distinguish between finding the shape of the intersection curve, which might only be useful for display, and finding an accurate mathematical representation of the curve. The latter is important for any meaningful geomet... View full abstract»

    The author explores the link between probability and geometry. In the process, he shows how to exploit simple probabilistic arguments to derive many of the classical geometric properties of the parametric curves and surfaces currently in vogue in computer-aided geometric design. He also uses this probabilistic approach to introduce many new types of curves and surfaces into computer-aided geometri... View full abstract»

    Current database management systems do not meet the needs of CAD/CAM users. Boeing's Integrated Programs for Aerospace-Vehicle Design (IPAD) project strikes at the heart of the problem-moving data across heterogeneous distributed systems. A fundamental goal of IPAD is increased industrial productivity. The key to this increase is the concept of integration. The project does not pursue new advances... View full abstract»
