Description

New approaches to knot insertion and deletion are presented in this unique, detailed approach to understanding, analyzing, and rendering B-spline curves and surfaces. Computer scientists, mechanical engineers, and programmers and analysts involved in CAD and CAGD will find innovative, practical applications using the blossoming approach to knot insertion, factored knot insertion, and knot deletion, as well as comparisons of many knot insertion algorithms. This book also serves as an excellent reference guide for graduate students involved in computer aided geometric design.
