The curve is defined by the equation c(t) = B

It is contained in the convex hull of the set of control points. Here the curve is constructed using a small script (EUC_Scripts\EUC_Curves\GeneralBezier.txt). n is the

Most useful for applications are the "piecewise" Bezier curves, build from Bezier "Arcs" i.e. Bezier curves of degree 3. Usually the arcs are joined so that their tangents vary continuously at the joins. This kind of piecewise Bezier curves can be produced through a build in tool of EucliDraw. Below is such an example build up from 6 arcs. Each arc has 4 control points. At each join two control points are identified. Thus there are 6*3 = 18 control points in total.
