Multivariate Polysplines

Applications to Numerical and Wavelet Analysis


Multivariate polysplines are a new mathematical technique that has arisen from a synthesis of approximation theory and the theory of partial differential equations. It is an invaluable means to interpolate practical data with smooth functions.
Multivariate polysplines have applications in the design of surfaces and "smoothing" that are essential in computer aided geometric design (CAGD and CAD/CAM systems), geophysics, magnetism, geodesy, geography, wavelet analysis and signal and image processing. In many cases involving practical data in these areas, polysplines are proving more effective than well-established methods, such as kKriging, radial basis functions, thin plate splines and minimum curvature.

Wizard's Trap

Laurel always had a thing for sexy, good-looking Gil, and he wanted her, but the time was never right. Now he's missing and presumed dead. Laurel tries to contact his spirit and succeeds-but she discovers he isn't a ghost. Instead, he's a wizard who's cursed and imprisoned on the astral plane. Communicating with Laurel through his diary, Gil…

Part 1 assumes no special knowledge of partial differential equations and is intended as a graduate level introduction to the topic
Part 2 develops the theory of cardinal Polysplines, which is a natural generalization of Schoenberg's beautiful one-dimensional theory of cardinal splines.
Part 3 constructs a wavelet analysis using cardinal Polysplines. The results parallel those found by Chui for the one-dimensional case.
Part 4 considers the ultimate generalization of Polysplines - on manifolds, for a wide class of higher-order elliptic operators and satisfying a Holladay variational property.
