Bézier Approximation

  • David Salomon (emeritus)
Part of the Texts in Computer Science book series (TCS)


Bézier methods for curves and surfaces are popular, are commonly used in practical work, and are described here in detail. Two approaches to the design of a Bézier curve are described, one using Bernstein polynomials and the other based on the mediation operator. Both rectangular and triangular Bézier surface patches are discussed, with examples.
