Curves and Surfaces for CAGD: A Practical Guide by Gerald Farin

By Gerald Farin

This 5th variation has been totally up-to-date to hide the various advances made in CAGD and curve and floor concept in view that 1997, while the fourth version seemed. fabric has been restructured into idea and purposes chapters. the speculation fabric has been streamlined utilizing the blossoming technique; the functions fabric comprises least squares innovations as well as the conventional interpolation tools. In all different respects, it really is, fortunately, an analogous. this suggests you get the casual, pleasant kind and new angle that has made Curves and Surfaces for CAGD: a realistic Guide a real classic.

The book's unified remedy of all major equipment of curve and floor layout is seriously serious about the circulation from concept to software. the writer presents whole C implementations of the various theories he discusses, starting from the normal to the modern. you are going to achieve a deep, sensible knowing in their benefits, hazards, and interrelationships, and within the approach you will see why this publication has emerged as a confirmed source for millions of different execs and teachers.

This three tangent theorem describes a property of parabolas; the de Casteljau algorithm can be viewed as the constructive counterpart. 1, although using a different notation, may serve as an illustration of the theorem. 2 The de Casteljau Algorithm Parabolas are plane curves. ^ For those purposes, the previous construction for a parabola can be generalized to generate a polynomial curve of arbitrary degree n\ de Casteljau algorithm: Given: bo, b j , . . 2) and h^(t) = b/. Then h^it) is the point with parameter value t on the Bezier curve b", hence \y^{t) = ^(t).

C^ = 0. We mention some subspaces of C[a, b] that will be of interest later. The spaces V^ of all polynomials of degree n are p'^it) = ao-\- ait + ait^ + • • • + aj""-, t e [a, b]. , a^. These can be interpreted as a vector in {n + 1)dimensional finear space R " + \ which has dimension w + 1. We can also name a basis for V^: the monomials \,t,t^^. ,t^ are w + 1 finearly independent functions and thus form a basis. Another interesting class of subspaces of C[^, b] is given by piecewise linear functions: let ^ = ^Q < ^l < ' * * < ^w = ^ be a partition of the interval [a, b\ A continuous function that is linear on each subinterval [^/, tij^^ is called a piecewise linear function.

Let a, x, b be three coUinear points in E^: x = a a + )Sb; 2 Here, 0 denotes the zero vector. a + jS = l . 2 1 27 -o«- 1 Linear interpolation: the vector 1 in the domain is mapped to the vector 1(1) in the range. Then a and ^ are called harycentric coordinates of x with respect to a and b. Note that by our previous definitions, x is a barycentric combination of a and b. The connection between barycentric coordinates and linear interpolation is obvious: we have a = \ — t and ^ — t. This shows, by the way, that barycentric coordinates do not always have to be positive: for t ^ [0,1], either a or ^ is negative.
