    We introduce a Hermite-interpolating space general enough to include most commonly used tensioned interpolants, with conditions that allow others to be easily constructed. Each of these spaces may be associated with a convexity interval that gives a quantitative measure of its ability to produce convexity-preserving interpolants. This analysis is applied to produce a simple algorithm for construct... View full abstract»

    Special attention is given to the adaptation of the technique for efficiency to both polynomial and rational Bezier patches. The resulting algorithms are simple and robust. Their speed depends mainly on the surface area of the object being rendered, not on the number of surface patches. The technique is particularly suitable for rapid display of geometrically complex objects. Since the technique d... View full abstract»
