CARMA COLLOQUIUM Speaker: Peter Massopust, Technical University of Munich Title: B-Splines and Beyond Location: Room V205, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 12th Oct 2017 Abstract: Schoenberg’s polynomial cardinal B-splines of order $n$ provide a family of compactly supported $C^{n-2}$-functions. We present several generalizations of these B-splines, discuss their properties, and relate them to fractional difference and differentiation operators. Potential applications are mentioned.
