dc.description.abstractBiharmonic B-splines, proposed by Feng and Warren, are an elegant generalization of univariate B-splines to planar and curved domains with fully irregular knot configuration. Despite the theoretic breakthrough, certain technical difficulties are imperative, including the necessity of Voronoi tessellation, the lack of analytical formulation of bases on general manifolds, expensive basis re-computation during knot refinement/removal, being applicable for simple domains only (e.g., such as euclidean planes, spherical and cylindrical domains, and tori). To ameliorate, this paper articulates a new biharmonic B-spline computing paradigm with a simple formulation. We prove that biharmonic B-splines have an equivalent representation, which is solely based on a linear combination of Green's functions of the bi-Laplacian operator. Consequently, without explicitly computing their bases, biharmonic B-splines can bypass the Voronoi partitioning and the discretization of bi-Laplacian, enable the computational utilities on any compact 2-manifold. The new representation also facilitates optimization-driven knot selection for constructing biharmonic B-splines on manifold triangle meshes. We develop algorithms for spline evaluation, data interpolation and hierarchical data decomposition. Our results demonstrate that biharmonic B-splines, as a new type of spline functions with theoretic and application appeal, afford progressive update of fully irregular knots, free of singularity, without the need of explicit parameterization, making it ideal for a host of graphics tasks on manifolds.en
