Generating Smooth Surfaces by Refinement of Curves

Generalization of subdivision schemes refining points to schemes refining more complex geometric objects has become popular in recent years. In this paper we generalize corner-cutting schemes in order to refine curves taking into account the geometry of the curves. We provide conditions guaranteeing that these schemes are well defined and converge to surfaces with contentious tangents.
