## Detailed Description

### template<class P> class SimTK::Geo::BicubicBezierPatch_< P >

A primitive useful for computations involving a single bicubic Bezier patch.

Note that a bicubic Bezier spline surface would not necessarily be composed of these, but could use the static methods here for patch computations.

### Theory

The primary reference for this implementation is the book "Geometric Modeling, 3rd ed." by Michael E. Mortenson, Industrial Press 2006, chapter 8. We follow Mortenson's notation here (with some name changes) and equation numbers are from the text. See CubicHermiteCurve_ and BicubicHermitePatch_ comments for introductory material; here we add the Bezier description to the algebraic and Hermite (geometric) forms described there.

We use B for Bezier control points (rather than P), and H for Hermite coefficients (rather than B). We call the Bezier basis matrix Mb (same as Mortenson) but call the Hermite basis matrix Mh (rather than Mf).

The 16 control points are laid out like this, matching Mortenson, with the Hermite coefficient matrix for comparison:

```        [ b11 b12 b13 b14 ] u=0        [ h00  h01  w00  w01 ]    u=dp/du
B = [ b21 b22 b23 b24 ]  .     H = [ h10  h11  w10  w11 ]    w=dp/dw
[ b31 b32 b33 b34 ]  .         [ u00  u01  t00  t01 ]    t=d2p/dudw
[ b41 b42 b43 b44 ] u=1        [ u10  u11  t10  t11 ]      ("twist")
w=0   . .   w=1
```

We store those in a 4x4 hypermatrix; subtract one from each control point index to get the matrix indices (sorry).

To convert between Bezier and Hermite or algebraic forms, use

```    A = Mb B ~Mb  (although Mb is symmetric so ~Mb=Mb)
H = (Mh^-1 Mb) B ~(Mh^-1 Mb)
B = (Mb^-1 Mh) H ~(Mb^-1 Mh)
```

where the parenthesized (very simple) matrices are given explicitly in the Theory section for CubicBezierCurve_. The results are:

```    [    b11         b14           3(b12-b11)             3(b14-b13)     ]
H = [    b41         b44           3(b42-b41)             3(b44-b43)     ]
[ 3(b21-b11)  3(b24-b14)  9(b22-b21-{b12-b11})  9({b24-b14}+b13-b23) ]
[ 3(b41-b31)  3(b44-b34)  9({b42-b41}+b31-b32)  9({b44-b34}+b33-b43) ]
```

The braces in the twist terms mark common subexpressions, so the conversion from Bezier to Hermite takes 3x28=84 flops (all entries are 3-vectors).

```    [   h00            h00+w00/3               h01-w01/3          h01    ]
B = [h00+u00/3 {h00+u00/3}+w00/3+t00/9 {h01+u01/3}-w01/3-t01/9 h01+u01/3 ]
[h10-u10/3 {h10-u10/3}+w10/3-t10/9 {h11-u11/3}-w11/3+t11/9 h11-u11/3 ]
[   h10            h10+w10/3               h11-w11/3          h11    ]
```

Exploiting the common subexpressions in braces, conversion from Hermite to Bezier takes 3x32=96 flops.
