A Condition Number for Bézier Curve Intersection
This repository is laid out in a manner described in Good Enough Practices in Scientific Computing.
We present a short note describing a condition number of the intersection of two Bézier curves. Since tangent intersections are to transversal intersections as multiple roots are to simple roots of a function, this condition number is infinite for non-transveral intersections.
The code used to build the manuscript, generate images and verify
computations is written in Python. To run the code, Python 3.7
should be installed, along with
python -m pip install --upgrade nox-automation
Once installed, the various build jobs can be listed. For example:
$ nox --list-sessions Available sessions: * build_tex
nox -s build_tex (i.e. to build the PDF),
bibtex are required.
