Molecular Surface Decomposition Using Graphical Modeling

Abstract

We aim at decomposing molecular surfaces which are in the form of Van der Waals model into a structure adapted for mesh-free modeling. We focus on the generation of spherical patches by using rational Bézier surfaces and homogeneous coordinates. We can achieve exact global continuity by using generalized stereographic projection. We support the theoretical descriptions by practical decompositions of a few molecular surfaces.
