Course Geometric Modeling provides students with theoretical backgrounds from area of geometric modeling of 3D objects and with knowledge how to apply the theory in praxis. Students will be provided with information on: - Basic representations of 3D objects, - data structures needed for the representations of 3D objects and - operations with 3D objects. In the course labs, the students will be solving number of practical assignments from area of geometric modeling. The aim of the course labs is to implement data structures for selected representations of 3D objects and to implements selected operations with these representations.

Study targets:

The aim of course Geometric Modeling is to provide students with knowledge that will allow them to write their own applications that create 3D objects and manipulate with them..

Course outlines:

1. Mathematics for geometic modeling
2. Taxonomy of reprezentations of 3D objects
3. Polygonal reprezentation
