"Ron Goldman is a leading expert who knows the fundamental concepts and their interconnectedness, as well as the small details. The elegance of the writing and of the methods used to present the material allows us to get a deep understanding of the central concepts of CAGD. In its simplicity and pure beauty, the theory indeed resembles the pyramids."
âHelmut Pottman, Vienna University of Technology
"A textbook approach to understanding, analyzing and computing common polynomial and spline curves, and surfaces schemes in computer-aided geometric modeling and design. Goldman employs a dynamic programming method based on recursive pyramids for revealing the structure and relationship of algorithms." - Design Issue
