INF9365 – Topics in geometric modelling
Topics such as Bezier curves and surfaces, geometric continuity, curvature, subdivision, curve and surface fitting, barcentric coordinate methods
The students will get a thorough view on modern techniques in geometric modelling, emphazising practical methods and the mathematical theory.
In addition, each PhD student will be given an extended curriculum within the field/research area of the course. The syllabus must be approved by the lecturer so that the student can be admitted to the final exam.
PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.
If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.
PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.
