In contrast to traditional parametric surfaces, implicit surfaces can easily describe smooth, intricate, and articulatable shapes. These powerful yet easily understood surfaces are finding use in a growing number of graphics applications. This comprehensive introduction develops the fundamental concepts and techniques of implicit surface modeling, rendering, and animating in terms accessible to anyone with a basic background in computer graphics. provides a thorough overview of implicit surfaces with a focus on their applications in graphics explains the best methods for designing, representing, and visualizing implicit surfaces surveys the latest researchWith contributions from seven graphics authorities, this innovative guide establishes implicit surfaces as a powerful and practical tool for animation and rendering.
