Stretching Transformation. Let [B.sub.1] = [[P.sub.10], [P.sub.11], [P.sub.12], [P.sub.13]] be a Bezier curve and [B.sub.2] is the Bezier curve obtained from [B.sub.1] via affine stretching (it can be linear).
To describe C in the region of nonuniformity we need a stretching transformation [zeta] = [eta]/[epsilon] and an inner product is described in terms of the special function exp ([zeta]).
