B-splines $B_{q}$, $\Sc q > 1$, of quaternionic order $q$, for short quaternionic B-splines, are quaternion-valued piecewise M\"{u}ntz polynomials whose scalar parts interpolate the classical Schoenberg splines $B_{n}$, $n\in\N$, with respect to degree and smoothness. As the Schoenberg splines of order $\geq 3$, they in general do not satisfy the interpolation property $B_{q}(n-k) = \delta_{n,k}$, $n,k\in\Z$. However, the application of the interpolation filter $1/\sum\limits_{k\in\Z} \widehat… 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
Interpolation and Sampling with Exponential Splines of Real Order
We establish the existence of fundamental cardinal exponential B-splines of positive real order $\sigma$ subject to two conditions on $\sigma$ and implement their construction. A sampling result forExpand


Fractional Splines and Wavelets
The symmetric version of the B-splines can be obtained as the solution of a variational problem involving the norm of a fractional derivative, and may be used to build new families of wavelet bases with a continuously varying order parameter. Expand
Quaternionic B-splines
The relationship between quaternionic B-splines and a backwards difference operator is shown, leading to a recurrence formula, and it is shown that the collection of integer shifts of $B_q$ is a Riesz basis for its span, hence generating a multiresolution analysis. Expand
Complex B-splines
We propose a complex generalization of Schoenberg’s cardinal splines. To this end, we go back to the Fourier domain definition of the B-splines and extend it to complex-valued degrees. We show thatExpand
Cardinal interpolation and spline functions: II interpolation of data of power growth
Abstract Let m be a natural number and let S m denote the class of functions S ( x ) of the following nature: If m is even, then S ( x ) is a polynomial of degree m − 1 in each unit interval ( v , vExpand
Multivariate Interpolation with Fundamental Splines of Fractional Order
Fractional B-splines Bσ, σ ≥ 1, are piecewise polynomials of fractional degree that interpolate the classical Schoenberg splines , with respect to the degree. As the Schoenberg splines of order ≥ 3,Expand

How well does the finite Fourier transform approximate the Fourier transform
We show that the answer to the question in the title is “very well indeed.” In particular, we prove that, throughout the maximum possible range, the finite Fourier coefficients provide a goodExpand

We characterize nonempty open subsets of the complex plane where the sum (s; ) + e is (s; 1 ) of Hurwitz zeta functions has no zeros in s for all 0 6 6 1. This problem is motivated by theExpand
