Helical preconditioning and splines in tension

Sergey Fomel


Splines in tension are smooth interpolation surfaces whose behavior in unconstrained regions is controlled by the tension parameter. I show that such surfaces can be efficiently constructed with recursive filter preconditioning and introduce a family of corresponding two-dimensional minimum-phase filters. The filters are created by spectral factorization on a helix.
