In this paper, the issue of multi-degree reduction of Bézier curves with C1 and G2-continuity at the end points of the curve is considered. An iterative method, which is the first of this type, is derived. It is shown that this algorithm converges and can be applied iteratively to get the required accuracy. Some examples and figures are given to demonstrate the efficiency of this method.
