INTRODUCTION Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging has broadened opportunities for examining morphologic aspects of the craniofacial complex, including alveolar bone, but limitations of the technology have yet to be defined. Through the use of comparisons with direct measurements, the purpose of this study was to investigate the accuracy and(More)
For a d-dimensional polyhedral complex P , the dimension of the space of piecewise polynomial functions (splines) on P of smoothness r and degree k is given, for k sufficiently large, by a polynomial f(P, r, k) of degree d. When d = 2 and P is simplicial, in [1] Alfeld and Schumaker give a formula for all three coefficients of f . However, in the polyhedral(More)
Piecewise Polynomial Functions on a Planar Region: Boundary Constraints and Polyhedral Subdivisions. (May 2006) Terry Lynn McDonald, B.S., The University of Texas at Tyler; M.S., Texas A&M University Chair of Advisory Committee: Dr. Henry Schenck Splines are piecewise polynomial functions of a given order of smoothness r on a triangulated region ∆ (or(More)
