Interactive curve modeling techniques and their applications are extremely useful inanumber ofacademicandindustrialsettings.Speci?cally, curvemodelingplays a signi?cant role in multidisciplinary problem solving. It is extremely useful in various situations like font design, designing objects, CAD/CAM, medical im- ing and visualization, scienti?c data visualization, virtual reality, object recog- tion, etc. In particular, various problems like iris recognition, ?ngerprint rec- nition, signature recognition, etc. can also be intelligently solved and automated using curve techniques. In addition to its critical importance more recently, the curve modeling methods have also proven to be indispensable in a variety of m- ern industries, including computer vision, robotics, medical imaging, visuali- tion, and even media. This book aims to provide a valuable source that focuses on interdisciplinary methods and to add up-to-date methodologies in the area. It aims to provide the user community with a variety of techniques, applications, and systems necessary for various real-life problems in the areas such as font design, medical visuali- tion, scienti?c data visualization, archaeology, toon rendering, virtual reality, body simulation, outline capture of images, object recognition, signature recognition, industrial applications, and many others.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The major goal of this book is to stimulate views and provide a source where students, researchers, and practitioners can find the latest developments in the field of interactive curve modeling and its applications. The book has been designed as a course book for undergraduate as well as graduate students in the area of computer science in particular. The main audience of the book are the communities related to the field of computer graphics, vision, and imaging." (Antonio López-Carmona, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1130 (8), 2008)"Researchers, engineers, scientists, and graduate students working on 'curve modeling/analysis/design' in computer graphics, computer-aided design (CAD)/computer-aided engineering (CAE)/computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), imaging/visualization, and computer vision will find this book useful. It reviews a host of problems, and describes various solutions and appropriate curve models. . Overall, the book fills an important gap in the current literature, and I am sure it will be very useful to specialists (academics, software developers, and graduate students) working in various fields on curve modeling problems."
