In this paper, %29&ck%5B%5D=abstract&ck%5B%5D=keyword'>;zier basis with shape parameter is constructed by an integral approach. Based on this basis, we define the %29&ck%5B%5D=abstract&ck%5B%5D=keyword'>;zier curves with shape parameter. The %29&ck%5B%5D=abstract&ck%5B%5D=keyword'>;zier basis curves with shape parameter have most properties of bernstein basis and the %29&ck%5B%5D=abstract&ck%5B%5D=keyword'>;zier curves. Moreover the shape parameter can adjust the curves’ shape with the same control polygon. As the increase of the shape parameter, the %29&ck%5B%5D=abstract&ck%5B%5D=keyword'>;zier curves with shape parameter approximate to the control polygon. In the last, the %29&ck%5B%5D=abstract&ck%5B%5D=keyword'>;zier surface with shape parameter is also constructed and it has most properties of %29&ck%5B%5D=abstract&ck%5B%5D=keyword'>;zier surface.

I am doing Ph.D. on the topic spline curves.

This paper entitled "Bézier curves with shape parameter" will defenitly help me for my studies.
