In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is an unambiguous specification of how to solve a class of problems.
In the mathematical subfield of numerical analysis, a B-spline, or basis spline, is a spline function that has minimal support with respect to a given degree, smoothness, and domain partition.
A Bézier curve (pronounced in French) is a parametric curve frequently used in computer graphics and related fields.
Bézier surfaces are a species of mathematical spline used in computer graphics, computer-aided design, and finite element modeling.
Combinatorics is an area of mathematics primarily concerned with counting, both as a means and an end in obtaining results, and certain properties of finite structures.
Computational geometry is a branch of computer science devoted to the study of algorithms which can be stated in terms of geometry.
Algorithmic topology, or computational topology, is a subfield of topology with an overlap with areas of computer science, in particular, computational geometry and computational complexity theory.
A contour line (also isocline, isopleth, isarithm, or equipotential curve) of a function of two variables is a curve along which the function has a constant value, so that the curve joins points of equal value.
Discrete mathematics is the study of mathematical structures that are fundamentally discrete rather than continuous.
Geometric modeling is a branch of applied mathematics and computational geometry that studies methods and algorithms for the mathematical description of shapes.
In the mathematical subfield of numerical analysis, a Hermite spline is a spline curve where each polynomial of the spline is in Hermite form.
An isosurface is a three-dimensional analog of an isoline.
Level-set methods (LSM) are a conceptual framework for using level sets as a tool for numerical analysis of surfaces and shapes.
List of combinatorial computational geometry topics enumerates the topics of computational geometry that states problems in terms of geometric objects as discrete entities and hence the methods of their solution are mostly theories and algorithms of combinatorial character.
This is an alphabetical index of articles related to curves.
Non-uniform rational basis spline (NURBS) is a mathematical model commonly used in computer graphics for generating and representing curves and surfaces.
Numerical analysis is the study of algorithms that use numerical approximation (as opposed to general symbolic manipulations) for the problems of mathematical analysis (as distinguished from discrete mathematics).
In mathematics, a parametric equation defines a group of quantities as functions of one or more independent variables called parameters.
A parametric surface is a surface in the Euclidean space \Bbb R^3 which is defined by a parametric equation with two parameters \vec r: \Bbb^2 \rightarrow \Bbb^3.
In mathematics, a spline is a function defined piecewise by polynomials.
