BS2VL

This function evaluates a two-dimensional tensor-product spline, given its tensor-product B-spline representation.

Function Return Value

BS2VL — Value of the spline at (X, Y). (Output)

Required Arguments

KXORD — Order of the spline in the X-direction. (Input)

KYORD — Order of the spline in the Y-direction. (Input)

XKNOT — Array of length NXCOEF + KXORD containing the knot sequence in the X-direction. (Input)

XKNOT must be nondecreasing.

XKNOT must be nondecreasing.

YKNOT — Array of length NYCOEF + KYORD containing the knot sequence in the Y-direction. (Input)

YKNOT must be nondecreasing.

YKNOT must be nondecreasing.

NXCOEF — Number of B-spline coefficients in the X-direction. (Input)

NYCOEF — Number of B-spline coefficients in the Y-direction. (Input)

BSCOEF — Array of length NXCOEF * NYCOEF containing the tensor-product B-spline coefficients. (Input)

BSCOEF is treated internally as a matrix of size NXCOEF by NYCOEF.

Description

The function BS2VL evaluates a bivariate tensor product spline (represented as a linear combination of tensor product B-splines) at a given point. This routine is a special case of the routine BS2DR, which evaluates partial derivatives of such a spline. (The value of a spline is its zero-th derivative.) For more information see de Boor (1978, pages 351− 353).

This routine returns the value of the function s at a point (x, y) given the coefficients c by computing

where kx and ky are the orders of the splines. (These numbers are passed to the subroutine in KXORD and KYORD, respectively.) Likewise, tx and ty are the corresponding knot sequences (XKNOT and YKNOT).

Comments

Workspace may be explicitly provided, if desired, by use of B22VL/DB22VL. The reference is:

CALL B22VL(X, Y, KXORD, KYORD, XKNOT, YKNOT, NXCOEF, NYCOEF, BSCOEF, WK)

The additional argument is

WK — Work array of length 3 * MAX(KXORD, KYORD) + KYORD.
