Appropriate for undergraduate courses in Computational Geometry and/or Computer Graphics. This book describes some basic problems in computer graphics and computational geometry, and presents some practical methods for solving them, using these problems and solutions as an introduction to the fields of Computational Geometry and Computer Graphics. Introducting the reader to the design and analysis of algorithms provides the framework for studying the algorithms covered in the text.
