Given the values and derivatives of a bivariate function, it is quite easy to construct smooth piecewise polynomial interpolants using their Bézier representation. However, there is no straightforward extension to arbitrary parametric surfaces as, for example, spheres. General C r joints or singular parametrizations are necessary to build such interpolants.
