This paper presents procedures for the explicit parametric representation and global description of surfaces of simply connected 3-D objects. The novel techniques overcome severe limitations of earlier methods (restriction to star-shaped objects 1], constraints on positioning and shape of cross-sections 2, 3], and nonhomogeneous distribution of parameter space). We parametrize the surface by deening a continuous, one-to-one mapping from the surface of the original object to the surface of a… CONTINUE READING
