Title: Using Nonoscillatory Splines to Model Urban Environments
Published: January 15, 2004
Abstract: In this paper we introduce the notion of Lavery splines and examine their properties in the univariate case. We also discuss some of the details involved with computing these splines on irregularly spaced data.
