NURBS BibTeX reference file
completed by: Dr Coconut
BRL-CAD maintains a bibliography file that keeps track of published articles and reports pertaining to BRL-CAD, but it would be useful to have similar files that keep track of other topics. There are commonly two ways to create and maintain a .bib file. One way is manually (using any text editor) and the other is using a GUI such as JabRef. The rule of thumb is generally to use the text editor approach when building a .bib file of references that are pre-packaged (such as those often provided by publishers of journal articles) and to use a tool like JabRef when you have to create the entire entry from scratch.
This task involves creating a NURBS.bib file that documents BRL-CAD's various paper references contained in the bibliographics of the following papers (include these papers and what they reference):
Practical Ray Tracing of Trimmed NURBS Surfaces http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.35.7126
Direct and Fast Ray Tracing of NURBS Surfaces http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.90.7500
Watertight Trimmed NURBS http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.146.3590
The best route is probably assembly of pre-existing .bib entries from either the citeseerx website or from the sites of the journal actually publishing the article.
