This is the only curves and surfaces book for beginners. It provides clear, practical explanations of curves and surfaces with the minimum of esoteric mathematical notation, making it far more accessible. You will be able to work along with the material for a better understanding of the concepts and a working knowledge of practical applications. Focus on Curves and Surfaces splits the material in two sections. The first part walks you through several forms of curves and surfaces explaining lines and functions of the equations. The next part moves from simple planes to complex surfaces so you can learn how to render surfaces using smoothing and simplification.
