Surveys, tutorials, and examine papers from a summer season 2002 workshop study a number of themes in algebraic geometry and geometric modeling. Papers are divided into sections on modeling curves and surfaces, multisided patches, implicitization and parametrization, subject kinds, and combined quantity and resultants, and papers from either disciplines are integrated in each one part. a few particular subject matters comprise polar kinds, interference research of conics and quadrics, rational M-patches and tensor-border patches, and toric beliefs, actual toric types, and the instant map. A translation of an 1841 paper which foreshadows the fashionable program of combined volumes in algebraic geometry is usually integrated.
