Intrinsic subdivision with smooth limits for graphics and animation
J. Wallner and H. Pottmann

Abstract:

This paper demonstrates the definition of subdivision processes in nonlinear geometries such that smoothness of limits can be proved. We deal with curve subdivision in the presence of obstacles, in surfaces, in Riemannian manifolds, and in the Euclidean motion group. We show how to model kinematic surfaces and motions in the presence of obstacles via subdivision. As to numerics, we consider the sensitivity of the limitís smoothness to sloppy computing.
