Real-Time GPU Rendering of Piecewise Algebraic Surfaces
Direct rendering of Bézier tetrahedra by specially encoding coefficient data on vertices and rasterizing faces. A pixel shader then robustly solves the (up to fourth-order) equations using analytic techniques.

Point-Sampled Cell Complexes
Point samples define the geometry of independent surface patches, curve segments, and corners, which are glued together based on explicit connectivity information, forming a piecewise smooth surface with features.

Geometric Modeling With Conical Meshes and Developable Surfaces
Conical meshes are quadrilateral meshes with planar faces that discretize the principal curvature lines. This paper studies their remarkable geometry and computation in combination with subdivision, and presents applications in architectural design.

Mesh Quilting for Geometric Texture Synthesis
A novel geometry texture synthesis algorithm, called mesh quilting, that seamlessly synthesizes a 3D texture sample given in the form of a triangle mesh over arbitrary surfaces.
