In this way, the locations of vertices on the edge only depend on the other vertices on that edge.

Perhaps I missed it, but is there mathematical reasoning behind redistributing the weights as such?

For people implementing this for the extra credit of project 2: I found it useful to use a different subdivision rule then this slide for existing vertices depending on the number of sharp edges it was connected to.

@ABSchloss The update of the existing vertices is similar to the old vertex updates in regular loop subdivision; it has the effect of smoothing the curve along the crease by bringing the old vertex closer to the newly created midpoints
