On the geometry of Dupin cyclides

Abstract

In the 19th century, the French geometer Charles Pierre Dupin discovered a non-spherical surface with circular lines of curvature. He called it a cyclide in his book,Applications de Geometrie published in 1822. Recently, cyclides have been revived for use as surface patches in computer aided geometric design (CAGD). Other applications of cyclides in CAGD… (More)
