Set-theoretic operations with R-functions

= & &

We use R-functions to represent a CSG object by a single real function. Well-known min/max functions are only C0 continuous. This can cause unpredictable results in further operations on the object. Other R-functions can provide C1 and even Ck continuity of the resulting function. It helped to formulate analytical descriptions for such operations as blending, offsetting, sweeping and others.
