For one week after receiving this booklet I agreed with an past very serious overview. I replaced my brain. the topic isn't really effortless yet written through anyone who understands his enterprise. Having received used to his notation i locate this booklet an increasing number of precious and refer again to it every time an issue arises and typically uncover the answer or a few pointer to the reply.

The parameter t varies from train tO tm~x along the curve P ( t ) ) The convention % - 0 is adopted. Formally, a B-spline curve is defined as a polynomial spline function of order k (degree k - 1), because it satisfies the following two conditions: P(t) is a polynomial of degree k - 1 on each interval xi <_ t < xi+l. P(t) and its derivatives of order 1, 2 , - . , k - 2 are all continuous over the entire curve. Thus, for example, a fourth-order B-spline curve is a piecewise cubic curve. 3) i=1 Each basis function is positive or zero for all p a r a m e t e r values, t h a t is, N~,k _> O.
