# On a Class of Polar Log-Aesthetic Curves

@article{Parque2021OnAC, title={On a Class of Polar Log-Aesthetic Curves}, author={Victor Parque}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2021}, volume={abs/2107.09489} }

Curves are essential concepts that enable compounded aesthetic curves, e.g., to assemble complex silhouettes, match a specific curvature profile in industrial design, and construct smooth, comfortable, and safe trajectories in vehicle-robot navigation systems. New mechanisms able to encode, generate, evaluate, and deform aesthetic curves are expected to improve the throughput and the quality of industrial design. In recent years, the study of (log) aesthetic curves have attracted the community… Expand
