Uniform Convergence of Discrete Curvatures from Nets of Curvature Lines

Ulrich Bauer, Konrad Polthier, Max Wardetzky
2010 Discrete & Computational Geometry  
We study discrete curvatures computed from nets of curvature lines on a given smooth surface, and prove their uniform convergence to smooth principal curvatures.  ...  We provide explicit error bounds, with constants depending only on properties of the smooth limit surface and the shape regularity of the discrete net.  ...  Open Access This article is distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial License which permits any noncommercial use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided  ...
