Curvature and Creases: A Primer on Paper
October 1976 (vol. 25 no. 10)
pp. 1010-1019
D.A. Huffman, Department of Information Sciences, University of California
This paper presents fundamental results about how zero-curvature (paper) surfaces behave near creases and apices of cones. These entities are natural generalizations of the edges and vertices of piecewise-planar surfaces. Consequently, paper surfaces may furnish a richer and yet still tractable class of surfaces for computer-aided design and computer graphics applications than do polyhedral surfaces.
Index Terms:
Computer-aided design, computer graphics, developable surfaces, Gaussian curvature, scene analysis.
