In mathematics, geometry is the topic I like. Just out of curiosity I would like to know what computational geometry is about. Who studies this subject and why. What are its applications, or is it confined to a theoretical side of things? How does it relate to computer science?

Computational geometry is a major part of the machinery necessary for creating computer graphics, either in games or movies. There are many uses, but if you are interested in computer graphics, it will be a very helpful class.
