Interpolating Rational Bézier Spline Curves with Local Shape Control

Alexander P. Pobegailo
2013 International Journal of Computer Graphics & Animation  
The paper presents a technique for construction of C n interpolating rational Bézier spline curves by means of blending rational quadric Bézier curves.  ...  The constructed spline curves have local shape control that make them useful in such geometric applications as real-time trajectory generation and fast curve sketching.  ...  CONSTRUCTION OF TWO SMOOTHLY JOINED CONIC ARCS The purpose of this section is to introduce analytical expressions for construction smoothly joined conic arcs.  ...

Improving G1 surface joins by using a composite patch

Jorg Peters, Joe D. Warren
1992 Curves and Surfaces in Computer Vision and Graphics III  
A popular approach to joining surface patches smoothly across a given boundary curve is to choose the transversal derivative as an average of the tangents at the end points.  ...  It consists of tensor-product patches that separate the original boundary tangents, so that constant G 1 joins can be used.  ...  One can view the composite patch as a polynomial alternative to the rational corrected patch in that it can smoothly interpolate incompatible mixed derivatives at the vertices of a mesh of curves.  ...

Modeling with rational biquadratic splines

Kȩstutis Karčiauskas, Jörg Peters
2011 Computer-Aided Design  
We develop a rational biquadratic G 1 analogue of the non-uniform C 1 B-spline paradigm.  ...  These G 1 splines can exactly reproduce parts of multiple basic shapes, such as cyclides and quadrics, and combine them into one smoothly-connected structure.  ...  For example, the twisted half-tori in Fig. 10 (b) join smoothly since they share the same tangent cylinder.  ...

Spontaneous breaking of classical PT symmetry

Carl M. Bender, Daniel W. Darg
