The Differential Geometry of Parametric Primitives Ken Turkowski 26 January 1990 Differential Properties of Parametric Surfaces A parametric surface is a function: where is a point in affine 3-space, and is a point in affine 2-space. The Jacobian matrix is a matrix of partial derivatives that relate changes in u and v to changes in x , y , and z : The Hessian is a tensor of second partial derivatives: The first fundamental form is defined as: Turkowski The Differential Geometry of Parametric Primitives 26 January 1990 Apple Computer, Inc.

and establishes a metric of differential length: so that the arc length of a curve segment, is given by: The differential surface area enclosed by the differential parallelogram is approximately: so that the area of a region of the surface corresponding to a region R in the u - v plane is: The second fundamental matrix measures normal curvature, and is given by: The normal curvature is defined to be positive a curve u on the surface turns toward the positive direction of the surface normal by: The deviation (in the normal direction) from the tangent plane of the surface, given a differential displacement of is: Turkowski The Differential Geometry of Parametric Primitives 26 January 1990 Apple Computer, Inc.
