# DE CASTELJAU ALGORITHM PDF

Although the algorithm is slower for most architectures when compared with the direct approach, it is more numerically stable. The curve at point t 0 can be evaluated with the recurrence relation. Here is an example implementation of De Casteljau's algorithm in Haskell :. When doing the calculation by hand it is useful to write down the coefficients in a triangle scheme as. When choosing a point t 0 to evaluate a Bernstein polynomial we can use the two diagonals of the triangle scheme to construct a division of the polynomial. The resulting four-dimensional points may be projected back into three-space with a perspective divide.

Now that I understand the De Casteljau algorithm, I want to share it with you folks, and help there be more useful google search results for it. The De Casteljau algorithm is more numerically stable than evaluating Bernstein polynomials, but it is slower. If you are looking for the mathematical equation of a Bezier curve the Bernstein form which uses Bernstein basis functions , you have come to the right place, but the wrong page!

The De Casteljau algorithm is actually pretty simple. If you know how to do a linear interpolation between two values, you have basically everything you need to be able to do this thing.

In short, the algorithm to evaluate a Bezier curve of any order is to just linearly interpolate between two curves of degree. Below are some examples to help show some details. The simplest version of a Bezier curve is a linear curve, which has a degree of 1. It is just a linear interpolation between two points and at time , where is a value from 0 to 1. When has a value of 0, you will get point. When has a value of 1, you will get point.

For values of t between 0 and 1, you will get points along the line between and. The next simplest version of a Bezier curve is a quadratic curve, which has a degree of 2 and control points. A quadratic curve is just a linear interpolation between two curves of degree 1 aka linear curves. Specifically, you take a linear interpolation between , and a linear interpolation between , and then take a linear interpolation between those two results.

That will give you your quadratic curve. The next version is a cubic curve which has a degree of 3 and control points. A cubic curve is just a linear interpolation between two quadratic curves. Specifically, the first quadratic curve is defined by control points and the second quadratic curve is defined by control points. The next version is a quartic curve, which has a degree of 4 and control points. A quartic curve is just a linear interpolation between two cubic curves.

The first cubic curve is defined by control points and the second cubic curve is defined by control points. So yeah, an order Bezier curve is made by linear interpolating between two Bezier curves of order.

While simple, the De Casteljau has some redundancies in it, which is the reason that it is usually slower to calculate than the Bernstein form. The diagram below shows how a quartic curve with control points is calculated via the De Casteljau algorithm. Compare that to the Bernstein form where is just. The Bernstein form removes the redundancies and gives you the values you want with the least amount of moving parts, but it comes at the cost of math operations that can give you less precision in practice, versus the tree of lerps linear interpolations.

Thanks to wikipedia for the awesome Bezier animations!
