Given a Bézier curve of degree n, the problem of optimal multi-degree reduction (degree reduction of more than one degree) by a Bézier curve of degree m (m< n−1)with constraints of endpoints continuity is investigated. With respect toL2 norm, this paper presents one approximate method (MDR by L2) that gives an explicit solution to deal with it. The method has good properties of endpoints interpolation: continuity of any r, s (r, s 0) orders can be preserved at two endpoints respectively. The… CONTINUE READING
