                         surfaces of arbitrary topology using a graphics processing unit 
                         (GPU). To do this we use the parametrization of Catmull-Clark 
                         subdivision surfaces and obtain the metric information of the 
                         distortion caused by this parametrization,so we can calculate 
                         differential operators of functions defined on this surface. Then 
                         the Navier-Stokes equations on surfaces are solved in the domain 
                         of parametrization of each patch. This process can be done in 
                         parallel for each point in the discretization of the surface, so 
                         the GPU implementation can heavily increase the velocity of
