**Designing fair curves and surfaces: shape quality in geometric modeling and computer-aided design**

This state of the art research of the recommendations used for designing curves and surfaces for computer-aided layout functions specializes in the primary that reasonable shapes are consistently freed from unessential good points and are basic in layout. The authors outline equity mathematically, exhibit how newly built curve and floor schemes warrantly equity, and support the consumer in deciding on and removal form aberrations in a floor version with no destroying the imperative form features of the version.

Namely, if we divide G by the maximal compact subgroup flcfi then, by the compactness of H, the spact V = G/H admits a G-invariant metric g. Such a metric is complete (this is elementary) and by a well known theorem of E. Cartan K(g) < 0. This curvature is strictly negative if and only if r a n k ^ G — 1 , and K(g) is constant if and only if G is locally isomorphic to O(n, 1). The compact manifolds V covered by V are associated to discrete subgroups re G which are usually produced by arithmetic constructions.

The sectional curvature K(v) of V c: 1ft3 equals the Jaeobian of the Gauss map V —> Ss at v, or equivalently to the •product of the principal curvatures {eienvahies of TIy or of the shape operator A) at v. Of course, the proof is trivial by the standards of the modern infinitesimal caulculus. Yet, the major consequence of the theorem looks as remarkable as it appeared 200 years ago: the Jaeobian of the Gauss map does not change if we bend V in IR^, that is if we apply a deformation preserving the length of the curves in V.

Furthermore, if dc(W) develops a self-inter section without focal points, then V~ becomes locally represented as an intersection of smooth convex subsets and so again it is convex. Then it is easy to believe in the convexity at the focal points aa well as these are just « infinitesimal » double points (vanishing of the differential of a map at a tangent vector i 6 T(W) brings together the « infinitely closed points » corresponding to the « two ends » of T). SIGN AND GEOMETRIC MEANING OF CURVATURE 53 To make the above rigorous, one may use a piecewise smooth approximation (compare § 0) of convex hypersurfaces (and subsets) as in Fig.
