Title: Linearizing the Area and Volume Constraints
Authors: Gershon Elber
Abstract: Positional, tangential, and orthogonality constraints are all linear and can be easily incorporated into freeform curve and surface editing and manipulation environment. In this paper, we show that the area and volume constraints that are traditionally considered non linear and hence difficult to handle, can indeed be reformulated as linear constraints and similarly incorporated with ease into editing environment.
