Dr. Ferguson (Ph.D., University of Wisconsin) has been a member of the Boeing mathematics staff since 1978. Much of his work at Boeing has involved the application of mathematical splines to a wide variety of real-world engineering problems. In particular, he has worked extensively on issues related to computer-aided geometric design and in the specific area of developing mathematical algorithms for curve and surface generation. He has written and talked widely on the issue of shape control for geometric objects. He has also been involved in the development of mathematical libraries for approximation and interpolation.
