summary 
The intersection curve between parametric surfaces is important in such computeraided design and manufacturing functions as shape design, analysis of drawing, design of fillets, and computation of numerically controlled tooling paths. The algorithm presented here provides an adequately accurate mathematical representation of the intersection curve. It also provides a database to simplify such operations as hiddensurface removal, surface rendering, profile identification, and interference or clearance computations. Further the algorithm facilitates creating and changing a finite element mesh in the intersection region
