This project is to develop interactive materials for MA 323 Geometric Modelling.   The material to be developed includes a proto type for a web-based text with java applets to learn about Bezier curves, B-splines, Catmull-Rom spline, Bezier patches, Coons patches, and more.  The above methods have extensive applications in computer graphics, computer aided design (CAD), imaging science and other fields.  Part of this grant funded the development of some interactive materials using the applets developed through the grant, available by following this link. Currently only the planar curve materials are available through this site. Materials for the other applets are forthcoming.
