Tuned Hybrid Non-Uniform Subdivision Surfaces with Optimal Convergence Rates

03/26/2020 ∙ by Xiaodong Wei, et al. ∙ 0

This paper presents an enhanced version of our previous work, hybrid non-uniform subdivision surfaces [19], to achieve optimal convergence rates in isogeometric analysis. We introduce a parameter λ (1/4<λ<1) to control the rate of shrinkage of irregular regions, so the method is called tuned hybrid non-uniform subdivision (tHNUS). Our previous work corresponds to the case when λ=1/2. While introducing λ in hybrid subdivision significantly complicates the theoretical proof of G^1 continuity around extraordinary vertices, reducing λ can recover the optimal convergence rates when tuned hybrid subdivision functions are used as a basis in isogeometric analysis. From the geometric point of view, the tHNUS retains comparable shape quality as [19] under non-uniform parameterization. Its basis functions are refinable and the geometric mapping stays invariant during refinement. Moreover, we prove that a tuned hybrid subdivision surface is globally G^1-continuous. From the analysis point of view, tHNUS basis functions form a non-negative partition of unity, are globally linearly independent, and their spline spaces are nested. We numerically demonstrate that tHNUS basis functions can achieve optimal convergence rates for the Poisson's problem with non-uniform parameterization around extraordinary vertices.
