An object that inherits from class polySpline
. This is the
piecewise polynomial representation of a univariate spline function.
It is defined by a set of distinct numeric values called knots. The
spline function is a polynomial function between each successive pair
of knots. At each interior knot the polynomial segments on each side
are constrained to have the same value of the function and some of its
derivatives.
