This chapter describes functions for the computation of smoothing basis splines (B-splines). A smoothing spline differs from an interpolating spline in that the resulting curve is not required to pass through each datapoint. See Interpolation, for information about interpolating splines.

The header file `gsl_bspline.h` contains the prototypes for the
bspline functions and related declarations.
