Stephen Mann
Title : Continuity Transition with a Single Regular Curved-Knot Spline Surface
Abstract:
I will present a paper I saw at SIGGRAPH on B-splines with non-constant (but appropriately constrained) knots. The main use of the method is to connect patches that have different levels of continuity along the boundaries to be connected.
