A basis for the implicit representation of planar rational cubic Bézier curves

Oliver J.D. Barrowclough
2014 Computer Aided Geometric Design  
We present an approach to finding the implicit equation of a planar rational parametric cubic curve, by defining a new basis for the representation.  ...  The basis, which contains only four cubic bivariate polynomials, is defined in terms of the B\'ezier control points of the curve.  ...  I would like to thank Tor Dokken for reading through the manuscript and for helpful suggestions. I would also like to thank the anonymous reviewers for their comments and corrections.  ...
