Techniques for Cubic Algebraic Surfaces
September/October 1990 (vol. 10 no. 5)
pp. 12-21

A survey of some techniques that may have potential for free-form modeling with algebraic surfaces is continued. Classical results as well as several recent innovations are included. Specific attention is paid to cubic algebraic surfaces, although many of the ideas presented have application to algebraic surfaces of any degree. Topics addressed include piecewise constructions, interpolation to points and space curves, and parameterization.
