title A Generalized Scan Line Algorithm for the Computer Display of Parametrically Defined Surfaces
source Computer Graphics and Image Processing Academic Press Inc., 1979. vol. 11: pp. 290-297 : ill. includes bibliography.
summary A scan line method is presented for creating shaded pictures of parametrically defined curved surfaces of piecewise continuity class C2. The algorithm uses a new subdivision technique to produce appropriate polygons for smooth shaded pictures. The approach results in smoothly curved silhouettes
