by Jean Gallier
Publisher: Morgan Kaufmann 1999
Number of pages: 502
This book offers both a theoretically unifying understanding of polynomial curves and surfaces and an effective approach to implementation that you can bring to bear on your own work -- whether you are a graduate student, scientist, or practitioner.

This introductory book emphasises algorithms and applications, such as cryptography and error correcting codes. It is accessible to a broad audience. Prerequisites are a typical undergraduate course in calculus and some experience in doing proofs.
The purpose of this book is to show how the computer can draw technically perfect pictures of Julia and Mandelbrot sets. All the necessary theory is explained and some words are said about how to put the things into a computer program.

Using examples from a broad base of computational tasks, including data processing and computational photography, the book introduces numerical modeling and algorithmic design from a practical standpoint and provides insight into theoretical tools.

Art gallery theorems and algorithms are so called because they relate to problems involving the visibility of geometrical shapes and their internal surfaces. This book explores generalizations and specializations in these areas.
