Pythagorean-Hodograph Curves: Algebra and Geometry Inseparable (Geometry and Computing)

Pythagorean-Hodograph Curves: Algebra and Geometry Inseparable (Geometry and Computing)

by RidaFarouki (Author)

Synopsis

By virtue of their special algebraic structures, Pythagorean-hodograph (PH) curves offer unique advantages for computer-aided design and manufacturing, robotics, motion control, path planning, computer graphics, animation, and related fields. This book offers a comprehensive and self-contained treatment of the mathematical theory of PH curves, including algorithms for their construction and examples of their practical applications. It emphasizes the interplay of ideas from algebra and geometry and their historical origins and includes many figures, worked examples, and detailed algorithm descriptions.
