 Splines Mathematica supports state-of-the-art splines for use both in graphics and computational applications. Mathematica allows not just cubic splines, but splines of any degree—for curves, surfaces, and in general manifolds of any dimension. Mathematica can not only handle and import splines numerically, but can also represent them as explicit piecewise symbolic functions, fully integrated with all Mathematica's computational functionality. Spline Objects BezierFunction — create a function representing a Bézier manifold in any dimension BSplineFunction — create a function representing a B-spline manifold in any dimension Basis Functions BernsteinBasis, BSplineBasis — numeric or symbolic spline basis functions Spline Interpolation Interpolation — create interpolations using splines and other methods      Graphics Primitives BezierCurve — 2D or 3D composite Bézier curves of any degree BSplineCurve — 2D or 3D B-spline (NURB) curves of any degree BSplineSurface — B-spline (NURB) surfaces of any degree      Import and Export Import, Export — import and export splines for fonts, CAD, computer graphics, etc.
