Fairing Bicubic B-Spline Surfaces using Simulated Annealing

Abstract

In this paper we present an automatic fairing algorithm for bicubic B-spline surfaces. The fairing method consists of a knot removal and knot reinsertion step which locally smoothes the surface. The simulated-annealing search strategy is used to search for the global minimum of the fairing measure.
