Control Point Removal Algorithm for T-Spline Surfaces
This paper discusses the problem of removing control points from a T-spline control grid while keeping the surface unchanged. An algorithm is proposed to detect whether a specified control point can be removed or not and to compute the new control points if the point is removable. The algorithm can be viewed as a reverse process of the T-spline local knot insertion algorithm. The extension of the algorithm to remove more control points is also discussed.
