For over three decades, eminent computer graphicist Jim Blinn has coupled his scientific knowledge and artistic abilities to foster the growth of the computer graphics field. His many contributions include the Voyager flyby animations of space missions to Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus; The Mechanical Universe, a 52-part telecourse of animated physics; and the computer animation of Carl Sagan's PBS series Cosmos.

ISBN-13: 978-1558602335. In addition, Blinn is the recipient of the SIGGRAPH Computer Graphics Achievement Award as well as the SIGGRAPH Coons Award, and has developed many widely used graphics techniques, including bump mapping, environment mapping, and blobby modeling. In 2000, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering.

Our solution in this paper is to extend the surfaces introduced by Blinn by using threedimensional convolution with skeletons composed of polygons or curves. The resulting convolution surfaces permit fluid topology changes, seamless part joins, and efficient implementation. The implicit surfaces usually employed in computer graphics are two dimensional manifolds because they are defined by real-valued functions that impose a binary regionalization of space (. an inside and an outside). When tiled, these surfaces yield edges of degree two.

Implicit surfaces offer special effects animators, graphic designers, CAD engineers, graphics students, and hobbyists a new range of capabilities for the modeling of complex geometric objects. In contrast to traditional parametric surfaces, implicit surfaces can easily describe smooth, intricate, and articulatable shapes. These powerful yet easily understood surfaces are finding use in a growing number of graphics applications.This comprehensive introduction develops the fundamental concepts and techniques of implicit surface modeling, rendering, and animating in terms accessible to anyone with a basic background in computer graphics.+ provides a thorough overview of implicit surfaces with a focus on their applications in graphics+ explains the best methods for designing, representing, and visualizing implicit surfaces+ surveys the latest researchWith contributions from seven graphics authorities, this innovative guide establishes implicit surfaces as a powerful and practical tool for animation and rendering.
