Plex language in Solid/Geometrical modeling

Post by Amalesh Chakrabor » Wed, 06 Mar 1991 06:34:10

Hi  netters,

 Use of Plex language in pattern recognition is very well known. However,
 does anybody know of any application of Plex language in Solid/Geometrical
 modeling. Can anybody through  some light about this. Any reference to lead
 to some information will also be highly appreciated.

 thanks in advance.

Look at the following reference, which is the only PLEX-grammar based
modeler I have seen in the literature:

W. Lin and K. Fu, "A Syntactic Approach to 3-D Object Representation",
IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, 1984
PAMI-6(3), pp. 351-365

There are a number of other formal languages that have been used for
shape representation, notably the shape grammars of Stiny (UCLA),
the algebraic and node label control graph grammars that I have
used for shape representation and enumeration, the structure
grammars of Woodbury (CMU), and various attributed grammars.
