Subdivision Methods for Geometric Designprovides computer graphics students and designers with a comprehensive guide to subdivision methods, including the background information required to grasp underlying concepts, techniques for manipulating subdivision algorithms to achieve specific effects, and a wide array of digital resources on a dynamic companion Web site. Subdivision Methods promises to be a groundbreaking book, important for both advanced students and working professionals in the field of computer graphics.

The only book devoted exclusively to subdivision techniques
Covers practical topics including uniform Bezier and B-Spline curves, polyhedral meshes, Catmull-Clark subdivision for quad meshes and objects with sharp creases and pointed vertices
A companion website provides example code and concept implementations of subdivision concepts in an interactive Mathematica environment
