A Primer on Splines and NURBS for Isogeometric Analysis

  • Bert Jüttler
Part of the CISM International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 561)


This chapter collects fundamental facts concerning theory and algorithms for rational spline functions. In addition, it addresses fundamental techniques for creating domain parameterizations for isogeometric analysis. All presented facts are covered in more detail by the the rich literature on Computer Aided Geometric Design, e.g., (Fa02; FHK02; HL96; PT95; PBP02).
