An improved algorithm for constructing moving quadrics from moving planes
- 51 Downloads
This paper proposes an improved algorithm to construct moving quadrics from moving planes that follow a tensor product surface with no base points, assuming that there are no moving planes of low degree following the surface. These moving quadrics provide an efficient method to implicitize the tensor product surface which outperforms a previous approach by the present authors.
