## Detailed Description

Computes a 2D curve using an algorithm which minimizes tension, sagging, and jerk energy. As in FairCurve_Batten, two reference points are used.

## Constructor & Destructor Documentation

 FairCurve_MinimalVariation::FairCurve_MinimalVariation ( const gp_Pnt2d & P1, const gp_Pnt2d & P2, const Standard_Real Heigth, const Standard_Real Slope = `0`, const Standard_Real PhysicalRatio = `0` )

Constructs the two contact points P1 and P2 and the geometrical characteristics of the batten (elastic beam) These include the real number values for height of deformation Height, slope value Slope, and kind of energy PhysicalRatio. The kinds of energy include:

• Jerk (0)
• Sagging (1). Note that the default setting for Physical Ration is in FairCurve_Batten Other parameters are initialized as follow :
• FreeSliding = False
• ConstraintOrder1 = 1
• ConstraintOrder2 = 1
• Angle1 = 0
• Angle2 = 0
• Curvature1 = 0
• Curvature2 = 0
• SlidingFactor = 1 Warning If PhysicalRatio equals 1, you cannot impose constraints on curvature. Exceptions NegativeValue if Height is less than or equal to 0. NullValue if the distance between P1 and P2 is less than or equal to the tolerance value for distance in Precision::Confusion: P1.IsEqual(P2, Precision::Confusion()). The function gp_Pnt2d::IsEqual tests to see if this is the case. Definition of the geometricals constraints
