Aims 
The purpose of the course is to provide a systematical presentation of the main methods of computer representation of curves and surfaces, using simpler curves and surfaces and interpolation techniques. At the end of the course, the students should be able to choose the most simple and most efficient methods to represent these objects by computer. The seminary and the laboratory will approach different concrete aspects of implementation of the algorithms, as well as a series of practical applications
