Bezier Surface : Surface Intersection
In this article the authors explain the computational requirement and accuracy of two methods for finding the intersection of Bezier surfaces. In both methods, the existence of an intersection curve is confirmed by using the convex hull property of such surfaces. The first method evaluates the intersection by recursive subdivision of two patches with overlapping hulls. The second method detects a point on the intersection curve, then incrementally traces the intersection in the parametric spaces
