For one week after receiving this ebook I agreed with an previous very serious evaluation. I replaced my brain. the topic isn't effortless yet written through a person who is familiar with his enterprise. Having acquired used to his notation i locate this booklet increasingly more necessary and refer again to it every time an issue arises and customarily uncover the answer or a few pointer to the reply.

Riesenfeld, by then at Utah, was responsible for unification in terms of the nonuniform rational B-spline or NURBS curves and surfaces. My final contribution to the history was to act as host for Jeff Lane from Utah in 1975, following my move to the University of East Anglia. Lane's thesis on B-spline methods appeared in 1976. R.
