"Implicit surfaces" is a leading edge method for modeling that enables the production of certain complex surfaces that are not achievable by popular methods. They typically create very expressive animations providing for the visualization of soft deformable objects like organic structures and liquids. This practical guide provides a thorough description, with examples, of all the major aspects of implicit surface modeling and visualization.

Implicit objects have gained increasing importance in geometric modeling, visualisation, animation, and computer graphics, because their geometric properties provide a good alternative to traditional parametric objects. This book presents the mathematics, computational methods and data structures, as well as the algorithms needed to render implicit curves and surfaces, and shows how implicit objects can easily describe smooth, intricate, and articulatable shapes, and hence why they are being increasingly used in graphical applications. Divided into two parts, the first introduces the mathematics of implicit curves and surfaces, as well as the data structures suited to store their sampled or discrete approximations, and the second deals with different computational methods for sampling implicit curves and surfaces, with particular reference to how these are applied to functions in 2D and 3D spaces.

Implicit definition and description of geometric objects and surfaces plays a critical role in the appearance and manipulation of computer graphics. In addition, the mathematical definition of shapes, using an implicit form, has pivotal applications for geometric modeling, visualization and animation. Until recently, the parametric form has been by far the most popular geometric representation used in computer graphics and computer-aided design. Whereas parametric objects and the techniques associated with them have been exhaustively developed, the implicit form has been used as a complementary geometric representation, mainly in the restricted context of specific applications. However, recent developments in graphics are changing this situation, and the community is beginning to draw its attention to implicit objects. This is reflected in the current research of aspects related to this subject. Employing a coherent conceptual framework, Implicit Objects in Computer Graphics addresses the role of implicitly defined objects in the following parts: mathematical foundations of geometric models, implicit formulations for the specification of shapes, implicit primitives, techniques for constructing and manipulating implicit objects, modeling, rendering and animating implicit objects.

The creation of ever more realistic 3D images is central to the development of computer graphics. Ray tracing is one of the most popular and powerful means by which photo-realistic images can now be created. From fundamental principles to advanced applications, this guide provides how-to procedures and a detailed understanding of the scientific foundations of ray tracing. Richly illustrated with color and b&w plates.

It is the view of the author that the streams of geometric and solid modeling are converging, and that as the importance of this convergence is anticipated and recognized, the need for the development of techniques to bridge the gap between the two becomes critical. This book is devoted to filling that need. "Geometric and Solid Modeling" deals with the concepts and tools needed to design and implement solid-modeling systems and their infrastructure and substrata, making this information remarkably accessible--to the novice as well as to the experienced designer. The essential algorithms and the underlying theory needed to design these systems are given primary emphasis. Techniques for the study and implementation of geometric algorithms are taken from computer science, numerical analysis, and symbolic computation, among other areas. Special attention is given to geometric investigations of implicit and parametric surfaces, with the focal point being the possible integration of geometric and solid modeling.
