"Piegl and Tiller offer an excellent source of information on NURBS (nonuniform rational B-spines), which fills a very large gap in the technical literature related to CAD/CAM/CAE. It is written for the average engineer with elementary knowledge of college mathematics and computing. It would be very useful to students, teachers, and designers of geometric modeling systems. A well-presented work, with abundant computer-generated figures." -- Choice
The NURBS book covers all aspects of non-uniform rational B-splines necessary to design geometry in a computer aided environment. Basic B-spline features, curve and surface algorithms, and state-of-the-art geometry tools are all discussed. Detailed code for design algorithms and computational tricks are covered too, in a lucid, easy-to-understand style, with a minimum of mathematics and using numerous worked examples. The book is a must for students, researchers, and implementors whose work involves the use of splines.
"Some years ago a few researchers joked about NURBS, saying that the acronym really stands for Nobody Understands Rational B-Splines write the authors in their foreword; they formulate the aim of changing NURBS to EURBS, that is, Everybody ... . There is no doubt that they have achieved this goal. ...
... I highly recommend the book to anyone who is interested in a detailed description of NURBS. It is extremely helpful for students, teachers and designers of geometric modelling systems. ..."

This is book is an authority in the subject. In last 13 years there is no book which is as detailed and through as this.Published on February 8, 2008 by Sambit Kumar Dash
This book is complete, but there is too many math formula. The composition is appr. 80% formula explanation, 10% sample and 10% algorithm. Read morePublished on May 23, 2000 by rival
