Abstract

Cubic Bézier (Bernstein-Bézier) curves are used in computer drawing packages. In order to select a curve and manipulate it, it is necessary to determine whether a given point (x,y) lies on or near the curve segment. The following describes and approximate approach. Bézier curve A Bézier curve with n control points is a sum of Bernstein polynomials, viz. BernsteinBezier.pd 1
