Laurent, Pierre-Jean (ed.) et al., Curves and surfaces in geometric design. Papers from the 2nd international conference on curves and surfaces, held in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France, June 10-16, 1993. Wellesley, MA: A K Peters. 377-384 (1994).
Summary: The dual Bézier representation of rational curves and surfaces facilitates the development of efficient geometric algorithms for the design of certain special functional forms. This is demonstrated for developable surfaces, rational curves and surfaces with rational offsets and rational canal surfaces.
