Subject: Re: Who invent Bezier curve approximation for Arc
perhaps it's allowed to modify your question a little:
Who had invented the formula
for the tangent lenghts of a single cubic B=E9zier for the
approximation of a unit circle segment which starts at
angle 0 and ends at angle a ?
This means: the first two control points for a unit circle
segment are P0=3D(1,0), P1=3D(1,k).
The other control points are found by P3=3D(cos(a),sin(a))
and going from there with tangent length k to P2.
