Offset curves have diverse engineering applications, spurring extensive research on various offset techniques. In a paper on offset curve approximation (Lee et al., 1996), we suggested a new approach based on approximating the offset circle instead of the offset curve itself. To demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach, we compared it extensively with previous methods. To our surprise, Tiller and Hanson's (1984) simple method outperforms other methods for offsetting (piecewise) quadratic… 
Approximation of planar offset curves with globally bounded error for B-spline NC tool paths
The topic of representing the offset of a 2D B-spline curve in the same form has been a topic of research for a long time, and it has many industrial applications, especially in NC tool path

TLDR
The best uniform approximation of degree 3 with order 6 is used to construct a method to find the approximation of the offset curves for Bezier curves using the idea of the parallel derivative curves.
New Approximation Methods for Planar Offset and Convolution Curves
TLDR
Three methods of offset approximation are suggested, all of which allow simple error analysis and at the same time provide high-precision approximation and two methods of convolution approximation are also suggested that approximate convolution curves with polynomial or rational curves.
