Geometric Modelling

Semestr: Winter

Range: 14+4c


Credits: 4

Programme type: Undefined

Study form: Parttime

Course language:


Students will be acquanted with fundamentals of geometric modelling, visualization techniques and principles of information visualization. Various methods for object description are discussed both from geometric and topological points of view. Very important part of the course are methods for scientific visualization. Besides methods suitable for technical applications also methods for information visualization are discussed.


Course syllabus:

1. Methods for solid representation
2. Specific properties of individual methods
3. Correctness of representations
4. Topological properties of solids
5. Operations over solids, local operations
