Approximation with Quasi-Splines

G.H Kirov
January 01, 1992

In the theory of splines, a function is approximated piece-wise by (usually cubic) polynomials. Quasi-splines is the natural extension of this, allowing us to use any useful class of functions adapted to the problem.Approximation with Quasi-Splines is a detailed account of this highly useful...
