This package provides data types and functions for working with B-splines as a means to approximate real functions.


This package is compatible with Julia ≥ 1.0. It can be installed by typing

] add BSplines

in the Julia REPL.


The algorithms used for evaluating B-splines and their derivatives are adapted from the Fortran code found in Carl de Boor’s book A practical Guide to Splines[deBoor1978], in particular from the subroutines BSPLVB, BSPLVD and BVALUE. This package is published with his permission.
