  Bezier 
 
    (After  Frenchman  Pierre  Bézier  from  Regie  Renault) 
  A  collection  of  formulae  for  describing  curved  lines  ({Bezier 
  curve})  and  surfaces  ({Bezier  surface}),  first  used  in  1972  to 
  model  automobile  surfaces. 
 
  Curves  and  surfaces  are  defined  by  a  set  of  "control  points" 
  which  can  be  moved  interactively  making  Bezier  curves  and 
  surfaces  convenient  for  interactive  graphic  design.
