    A cloak covered with patches

    Hi. Could you help me solve this problem. I've tried using inclusion–exclusion principle but it didn't work. There is a cloak which area equals 1. It is completely covered with 5 patches, whose area is at least 0,5. Show that the area of the intersection of certain two patces is at least 0,2...

    How to connect cubic bezier surface patches continuous upto the 2nd derivative

    Hi, Imagine that I have got 16 nodes in a 3D space, each node with its (x,y,z) coordinates. The nodes are ordered in a grid and numbered (i,j) in accordance with their position, so i\in[1,4] and j\in[1,4]. I also know that the nodes are part of a curved surface (a topological square) and that...

    coordinate patches?

    The hyperboloid is given by H=\{(x,y,z) \vert x^2 + y^2 - z^2 =1\}. Find coordinate patches that cover all of H, using the parametrization \textbf{H}(s,t)=(\cos s \, \sec t ,\, \sin s \, \sec t ,\, \tan t). First thing--we haven't covered "coordinate patch" in lecture, and the phrase does not...
