Convergence of Discrete Elastica
Henrik Schumacher, Sebastian Scholtes, Max Wardetzky, Oberwolfach Reports No. 34/2012.
Abstract: Using techniques related to the notions of epigraph distance and Attouch-Wets-convergence, we show that under appropriate boundary conditions discrete elastica (i.e., polygonal curves of some fixed length that minimize a certain discrete bending energy) converge to smooth elastica (i.e., smooth curves of some given length that minimize smooth bending energy).
