Okay, I may have to look elsewhere for the name of a field series, if there
is such a thing?
I’m actually studying infinitesimal recursion, and stumbled across this
field series idea.
The idea behind infinitesimal recursion is to fractionalize a recursive
step, interpolation is typically done.
The question is, how to do recursive fractionation in a program. Similar
to rendering NURBS, most likely, but provide interpolation between
resolutions. Like multiresolution modeling?
Thanks!
