An Introduction to NURBS


David F. Rogers

Solutions Manual

Gathered here are the solutions to the problems in An Introduction to NURBS, With Historical Perspective. The solutions are given in two forms: by individual chapter and the entire solution manual. Each is a Portable Document File (.pdf). Two different versions of each file are provided - one optimized for screen viewing and the other optimized for printing. The files optimized for printing are quite a bit larger than those optimized for screen viewing, but they look better when printed.

The chapter by chapter files are provided so that if you are a professor and have adopted the book as a course text, you can assign problems in a particular chapter and then reveal the solutions chapter by chapter without compromising the solutions in later chapters.

Viewing or downloading the files requires a password. Please contact your Morgan Kaufmann Publishers Academic Sales Representive for the current password.
