X = F (u,v) x

Y = F (u,v) y

Z = F (u,v) zwith:

u E [U ,U ] min max

v E [V ,V ] min maxFor example:

F (u,v) = R.sin(u).cos(v) x

F (u,v) = R.sin(u).sin(v) y

F (u,v) = R.cos(u) zwith:

u E [0,pi]

v E [0,2.pi]defines a sphere with R as the radius and the origin of the coordinates as the center.

If D is sampled by means of a bidimensional rectangular grid (made of Nu.Nv points), the three {X,Y,Z} coordinates can be defined by means of three rectangular matrices:

X = M (i,j) x

Y = M (i,j) y

Z = M (i,j) zwith:

i = f(u,U ,U ,N ) min max u

j = g(v,V ,V ,N ) min max vwhere 'f' and 'g' denote two obvious linear functions...

Then it is possible

Let's give a deeper understanding of this process using the case of the sphere. Here are the three matrices Mx, My and Mz:

- Mx(i,j) = = Fx(u,v) = sin(u).cos(v)
- My(i,j) = = Fy(u,v) = sin(u).sin(v)
- Mz(i,j) = = Fz(u,v) = cos(u)

The "additive" superposition (red+green+blue) of these three matrices (black and white pictures) gives the following color picture:

+ + =

that is the color picture associated to the sphere (its

The surface colors are obviously arbitrary. But for all examples here provided, the gradients of the three functions Fx, Fy and Fz are locally defining the three Red, Green and Blue components.

At last, this process facilitates the interpolation between surfaces as on this example:

Many tridimensional manifolds in a tridimensional space can be defined using a set of three equations:

X = F (u,v,w) x

Y = F (u,v,w) y

Z = F (u,v,w) zwith:

u E [U ,U ] min max

v E [V ,V ] min max

w E [W ,W ] min max[Umin,Umax]x[Vmin,Vmax]x[Wmin,Wmax] then defined a tridimensional rectangular domain D. If D is sampled by means of a tridimensional rectangular grid (made of Nu.Nv.Nw points), the three {X,Y,Z} coordinates can be defined by means of a set of Nw rectangular matrice triplets:

k X = {M (i,j)} x

k Y = {M (i,j)} y

k Z = {M (i,j)} zwith:

i = f(u,U ,U ,N ) min max u

j = g(v,V ,V ,N ) min max v

k = g(w,W ,W ,N ) min max wwhere 'f', 'g' and 'h' denote two obvious linear functions...

Then it is possible

- == a tridimensional mesh.
- == a tridimensional distorted mesh.
- == a tridimensional fractal manifold.
- == a tridimensional manifold defined by means of an interpolation between the Bonan-Jeener's triple Klein bottle and a "double sphere".

Here is the used process:

X = F (u,v) x

Y = F (u,v) y

Z = F (u,v) zThe tridimensional coordinates {X,Y,Z} are then projected:

X = ProjectionX(X,Y,Z) p

Y = ProjectionY(X,Y,Z) pThe distorsion is the defined as:

DISTORSION(u,v) = TEXTURE(X ,Y ) p p'TEXTURE' being the picture "texture" to be self-transformed.
