Connections of Patches by Blending
Generally, when we have to define a surface patch, its degree of freedom is not always equal to that of given external conditions. If the latter is greater than the former, there must be some relations among the given conditions, or some methods must be provided to increase the degree of freedom of the patch to satisfy the given conditions.
