Abstract

This paper uses the symmetry properties of circles and Bernstein polynomials to establish a series of interesting barycentric properties of rational biquadratic Bézier patches. A robust algorithm is presented, based on these properties, for the conversion of Dupin cyclide patches into Bézier form. A set of conversion examples illustrates the use of this algorithm.
