Competencies / intended learning achievements
Upon successful completion of this module, the students are familiar with the theory of spline functions and have become acquainted with essential algorithms based on them and used e.g. in CAGD. They understand how multivariate functions can be approximated, resp. interpolated, by spline functions and are able to apply this knowledge to various examples. They understand the proofs presented in the lecture and are able to comprehend and explain them.
