is an option for spline functions and graphics primitives that specifies the degree of polynomial basis to use.


  • SplineDegree->d specifies the polynomial basis of maximal degree d in each dimension.
  • SplineDegree->{d1,d2,} specifies maximal degree dn in the n^(th)dimension.
  • With the setting SplineDegree->Automatic, the degree of the polynomial basis is determined from the number of control points, and the length of any knot sequence given. The default is degree 3 in each dimension.
