Bivariate C1 Cubic Spline Spaces Over Even Stratified Triangulations
It is well-known that the basic properties of a bivariate spline space such as dimension and approximation order depend on the geometric structure of the partition. The dependence of geometric structure results in the fact that the dimension of a C1 cubic spline space over an arbitrary triangulation becomes a well-known open problem. In this paper, by employing a new group of smoothness conditions and conformality conditions, we determine the dimension of bivariate C1 cubic spline spaces over a so-called even stratified triangulation.
