A curve is considered fair if it consists of continuous and few monotonic curvature segments. Polynomial curves such as Bézier and B-spline curves have complex curvature function, hence the curvature
profile may oscillate easily with a little twea...

The local induction equation, or the binormal flow on space curves is a well-known model of
deformation of space curves as it describes the dynamics of vortex filaments, and the complex
curvature is governed by the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. ...

In this paper a comprehensive review is given on the current status of
achievements in the geometric aspects of the Painlevé equations, with a
particular emphasis on the discrete Painlevé equations. The theory is
controlled by the geometry of ...

We study deformations of plane curves in the similarity geometry. It is known that continuous deformations of smooth curves are described by the Burgers hierarchy. In this paper, we formulate the discrete deformation of discrete plane curves descr...

The local induction equation, or the binormal flow on space curves is a well-known model of deformation of space curves as it describes the dynamics of vortex filaments, and the complex curvature is governed by the nonlinear Schödinger equation (N...

In this paper, we consider the discrete deformation of the discrete space curves with constant torsion described by the discrete mKdV or the discrete sine-Gordon equations, and show that it is formulated as the torsion-preserving equidistant defor...

We consider an integrability test for ultradiscrete equations based on the
singularity confinement analysis for discrete equations. We show how
singularity pattern of the test is transformed into that of ultradiscrete
equation. The ultradiscrete s...

We present a class of solutions to the discrete Painlevé-II equation for
particular values of its parameters. It is shown that these solutions can be
expressed in terms of Casorati determinants whose entries are discrete Airy
functions. The anal...
