"  Bezier curve fitting "
  Ashraf Ibrahim  


Bezier curves, named after a French enginneer named Pierre Bezier, are key tools in Geometric Design. Given a set of data points, we are interested in finding Bezier curve of a given degree that best fits the data. In addition to that, The curve should interpolate the first and last points of the data. In this talk, we are introducing a method for computing such a curve. The talk is basic and we do not assume any background in Geometric Design.
