Can anyone provide some links for background on NURBS? A search on
Google has many links, but many of them are not very helpful - links
to college classes, references to papers, etc. If you have a favorite
link handy please pass it along.

I did find this link on Apple's site:


This page provides a good background of NURBS, with equations and
pictures that illustrate how they operate. This page was written for Mac
programmers who were writting QuickDraw3D code.

Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities
the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.

-Thomas Jefferson to James Smith, 1822
