Asymmetric and Symmetric Spherical Product Surfaces with both Implicit and Parametric Representations

Pi-Chung Hsu
Abstract—This paper proposes spherical product functions to define implicit spherical product surfaces. A spherical product function is composed of a contour function and a profile function and its iso-surface’s shape is generated by modulating and translating the iso-curve of the contour function through the points on the iso-curve of the profile function. This paper also shows if contour and profile functions are ray-linear, then an implicit spherical product surface can be parameterized and hence have both the advantages of implicit and parametric surfaces. Moreover, this paper proposes ray-linear two-branch and one-branch linear and super-hyperbolic functions that can be used to construct new contour and profile functions with asymmetric or symmetric iso-curves. Based on them, an implicit spherical product surface can has asymmetric or symmetric contour and profile and also has a parametric representation.

Index Terms—Implicit surface, blending operations, parametric surface.
