We introduce B-splines on the line of quaternionic order \$B_q\$ (\$q\$ in the algebra of quaternions) for the purposes of multi-channel signal and image analysis. The functions \$B_q\$ are defined first by their Fourier transforms, then as the solutions of distributional differential equation of quaternionic order. The equivalence of these definitions requires properties of quaternionic Gamma functions and binomial expansions, both of which we investigate. The relationship between \$B_q\$ and a… Expand

On Some Generalizations of B-Splines
In this article, we consider some generalizations of polynomial and exponential B-splines. Firstly, the extension from integral to complex orders is reviewed and presented. The second generalizationExpand
