In this book the main problems related to the construction of an Earth-Model are presented and discussed. The first three chapters are dedicated to the classical methods that can be used to build numerical models, in particular, the author proposes:

- some of the classical modeling techniques used in Computer Aided Design (CAD) to model surfaces and their inadequacy for modeling complex geological objects, in particular:
- classical interpolation techniques used to model surfaces;
- topological models used to describe the connections between surfaces and volumes;
- an overview of geomodeling methods dedicated to the discrete modeling of geological objects, in particular:
- the Discrete-Smooth-Interpolation method (DSI);
- meshing techniques to model surfaces and grids;
- a presentation of the classical ?Shared-Earth-Model? (SEM) paradigm consisting in a...
