Paper Abstract

We introduce a subdivision algorithm for shape preserving function interpolation in 111 and JR2 . The method is based on iterative knot insertion and guarantees preservation of convexity. Starting from data points, a sequence of piecewise linear function is generated. The sequence can be shown to be convergent to a C1 function. The process is specially suitted for curve and surface generation in CAGD since it is local and the computation can be stopped whenever the desired visual effect is attained.
