POLYNOMIAL PATCHES THROUGH GEODESICS

By Marco Paluszny

Abstract

We construct low degree patches that contain any given 3D polynomial curve as a pregeodesic (i.e. geodesic up to reparametrization). A curve is a pregeodesic if and only if its rectifying plane coincides with the tangent plane to the surface, we use this fact to construct patches through pregeodesics. We also discuss the G¹ connection of (1,k) patches with abutting pregeodesics
