One hundred years after the introduction of the Bernstein polynomial basis, we survey the historical development and current state of theory, algorithms, and applications associated with this remarkable method of representing polynomials over finite domains. Originally introduced by Sergei Natanovich Bernstein to facilitate a constructive proof of the(More)
The Pythagorean hodograph (PH) curves are polynomial parametric curves {x(t), y(t)} whose hodograph (derivative) components satisfy the Pythagorean condition x'2(t)+y'2(t) = a2(t) for some polynomial a(t). Thus, unlike polynomial curves in general, PH curves have arc lengths and offset curves that admit exact rational representations. The lowest-order PH(More)
Follow up what we will offer in this article about pythagorean hodograph curves algebra and geometry inseparable. You know really that this book is coming as the best seller book today. So, when you are really a good reader or you're fans of the author, it does will be funny if you don't have this book. It means that you have to get this book. For you who(More)
The interpolation of first-order Hermite data by spatial Pythagorean-hodograph curves that exhibit closure under arbitrary 3-dimensional rotations is addressed. The hodographs of such curves correspond to certain combinations of four polynomials, given by Dietz et al. [4], that admit compact descriptions in terms of quaternions – an instance of the “PH(More)
In general, two quadric surfaces intersect in a nonsingular quartic space curve. Under special circumstances, however, this intersection may “degenerate” into a quartic with a double point, or a composite of lines, conics, and twisted cubics whose degrees, counted over the complex projective domain, sum to four. Such degenerate forms are(More)
