Using a new formulation of the Bezout matrix, we construct bivariate
matrix polynomials expressed in a tensor-product Lagrange basis. We
use these matrix polynomials to solve common tasks in computer-aided
geometric design:
for example, we show that these bivariate polynomials can serve as
stable and efficient implicit epresentations of plane
curves for a variety of curve intersection problems including offset
