By virtue of their special algebraic structures, Pythagorean-hodograph (PH) curves offer unique advantages for computer-aided design and manufacturing, robotics, motion control, path planning, computer graphics, animation, and related fields. This book offers a comprehensive and self-contained treatment of the mathematical theory of PH curves, including algorithms for their construction and examples of their practical applications. It emphasizes the interplay of ideas from algebra and geometry and their historical origins and includes many figures, worked examples, and detailed algorithm descriptions.

This volume contains the papers presented at 6th Conference on Geometric Modeling and Processing (GMP 2010) held in Castro Urdiales, Spain during June16–18,2010. GeometricModelingandProcessingisabiannualinternational conference series on geometric modeling, simulation and computing. Previously, GMPhasbeenheldinHongKong(2000),Saitama,Japan(2002),Beijing,China (2004), Pittsburgh, USA (2006) and Hangzhou, China (2008). GMP 2010 received a total of 30 submissions that were reviewed by three to four Program Committee members on average. While the number of subm- sions dropped signi?cantly from previous years, the quality did not and was still quite high overall. Based on the reviews received, the committee decided to - cept 20 papers for inclusion in the proceedings. Additionally, extended versions of selected papers were considered for a special issue of Computer-Aided - sign (CAD) and Computer-Aided Geometric Design (CAGD). The paper topics spanned a wide variety and include: – Solutions of transcendental equations – Volume parameterization – Smooth curves and surfaces – Isogeometric analysis – Implicit surfaces – Computational geometry Many people helped make this conference happen and we are grateful for their help. We would especially like to thank the Conference Chair, all of the authors who submitted papers, the ProgramCommittee members who reviewed the papers and all of the participants at the conference.

All papers have been peer-reviewed. The main goal of this series of conferences is to bring together experts and young talented scientists from Bulgaria and abroad to discuss modern trends and to ensure exchange of views in various applications of mathematics in engineering, physics, economics, biology, etc. Keeping the main topics of the previous AMEE conferences as well as the big success of AMEE'07, this year’s 34th issue was again subject to the motto "Nonlinear phenomena - mathematical theory and environmental reality." The organizing Committee encouraged the participation of senior and postgraduate students and organized a separate youth session. The invited speakers organized two special sessions. Within the 34th Conference AMEE’08 a "Round Table - Presentations and Discussion - on Mathematics Education in Bachelor Degree Programs and in Master Degree Programs," Conference Tutorial "Introduction to Software Agents and Their Applications," and Workshop on Grid and Scientific Engineering Application (GRID&SEA) took place. The publishing, promotion and distribution the proceedings among the mathematical and related societies taking an interest in its topics is an integral part of the Conference.
