Unformatted text preview: Rogers, D. F.; Adams, J. A. 458 MATHEMATICAL ELEMENTS FOR. COMPUTER GRAPHICS McGraw-Hill 1990 2/e If [C] is square, the deﬁning polygon net is obtained directly by matrix inversmn, i.e., [B]=[C]‘1[D] (6—83) In this case the resulting surface passes through each data point. Although the resulting surface will be everywhere Ck‘z, 01—2 continuous, it may not be fair. Experience has shown that, in general, the fewer the, deﬁning polygon net points the fairer the surface. I If [ C ] is not square the problem is overspeciﬁed. and a solution can only be obtained in some mean sense. In particular the solution is given by [BJ=[[01T[01]‘1[01T[D1 (6—84) The u and w parametric values for each surface data point are obtained using a chord length approximation (see Sec. 5-11). Speciﬁcally, for r data points the parameter value at the lth data point in the u parametric direction is I Z ng,s _ Dg—1,sl W 9:2 “max = T 2 ngvs — Dg—ly5l g=2 Similarly, for 5 data points in the w parametric direction U1=0 I Z [D779 — Drrg—li w; g=2 wl = 0 = 7—— wmax Z :lDrvg — DT,g—'1| g=2 where umax and wmax are the maximum values of the appropriate knot vectors. Figure 6*50a shows surface data and the deﬁning polygon net generated using this technique. Figure 6—50b shows the B—spline surface generated from this net. As previously pointed out for B-spline curve ﬁtting (see Sec. 5—11), neither this technique, nor that of Ref. 6—5, can yield hard points or hard lines (discon~ tinuities in the ﬁrst or second derivatives) in the resulting surface. ‘ Notice from Fig. 6—50 that the deﬁning polygon net vertices obtained using Eq. (6—84) lie anywhere in the three—dimensional plane. If the surface is to subsequently be modiﬁed, this is inconvenient. Rogers and Fog (Ref. 6—27) have developed a technique for iterating on the parametric values u, w that conﬁnes the deﬁning polygon net vertices to lie in planes or along lines in three space.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
