Abstract: We present a new strategy for constructing spline spaces over hierarchical T-meshes with quad- and octree subdivision schemes. The proposed technique includes some simple rules for inferring local knot vectors to define -continuous cubic tensor product spline blending functions. Our conjecture is that these rules allow to obtain, for a given T-mesh, a set of linearly independent spline functions with the property that spaces spanned by nested T-meshes are also nested, and therefore, the functions can reproduce cubic polynomials. In order to span spaces with these properties applying the proposed rules, the T-mesh should fulfill the only requirement of being a 0-balanced mesh. The straightforward implementation of the proposed strategy can make it an attractive tool for its use in geometric design and isogeometric analysis. In this paper we give a detailed description of our technique and illustrate some examples of its application in isogeometric analysis performing adaptive refinement for 2D and 3D problems.
