2 Siggraph 2005, 8/1/2005 www.cs.wustl.edu/~cmg/Siggraph2005/siggraph.html What should you get out of this course? Understand and apply basic concepts Surface modeling Other applications Math Basic ideas and intuition Formalism where it makes sense English

3 Siggraph 2005, 8/1/2005 www.cs.wustl.edu/~cmg/Siggraph2005/siggraph.html Course material I 8:30-10:15 Manifold concepts and terms Descriptive (what it means for an object to be manifold) Constructive (how do I build one?) Concrete, simple examples What makes manifolds useful? Surface modeling using manifolds Building an embedded surface Background needed: Basic math skills Meshes, splines, subdivision surfaces

4 Siggraph 2005, 8/1/2005 www.cs.wustl.edu/~cmg/Siggraph2005/siggraph.html Course material II 10:30-12:15 Building and parameterizing manifolds of common types E.g., sphere, torus Global parameterization of meshes Texture mapping Applications Animation Rendering Image-based rendering Background needed: Calculus Familiarity with graphics applications
