This course focuses on the creation, representation and manipulation of geometric objects using computers. Major paradigms of building shapes are surveyed, including polyhedra, curved solids, and curves and surfaces. Classical computational geometry topics such as convex hulls and tessellation, and algorithm robustness and the impact of finite precision arithmetics on geometric computing will also be covered. Applications of geometric computing to computer graphics, computer vision, geometric modeling, computer-aided design, robotics, and other areas will be discussed.
No textbook is required. Please consult the following materials for your study:

There are 1100 points possible in this course - 600 from 6 exercises, 500 from quiz 1, quiz 2, the Midterm and the final. You will be graded on the percentage of these points you accumulate. Grading will be based approximately on the scale shown in the table below, but we will grade each section of this course separately and may make adjustments to the scale as necessary for each section.
In addition, you will not receive a passing grade in the course unless you receive a passing grade on the exams and quizzes alone (i.e., 60%). Likewise, you will not receive a passing grade in the course unless you receive a passing grade on the programming assignments alone (i.e., 60%).
No assignment-specific assistance should be given nor received on any programming assignment. Any outside help concerning the use of the computer facilities is acceptable. You may discuss the meaning or intent of an assignment, but not ways to program it. All work turned in must be completely your own. You must not share code or even outlines! Any and all use of programs from other texts or references must be explicitly stated as part of program documentation.
In general, any acts of plagiarism will result in a failing grade for the course along with the submission of a report to the Dean of Students. See the hand-out on Computer Science Policy on Cheating and Academic Integrity Policy for more details.
You are responsible for avoiding exam time conflicts!! The final is on Thursday, December 15, 3-5pm.
