Abstract

The methods of Computer Aided Geometric Design have arisen from the need of efficient computer representation of practical curves and surfaces used in engineering design. The generation of smooth surfaces from a set of three-dimensional data points is a key problem in this field. The purpose of this paper is to present algorithms for designing and testing smooth free-form surfaces.
