# Mathematical properties of B-spline

## Introduction

B-spline is a mathematical object, and it has a lot of application. (e.g. Geometric representation: NURBS, Interpolation, Numerical analysis: IGA)

In this page, we'll explain the mathematical definitions and properties of B-spline with Julia code. Before running the code in the following section, you need to import packages:

```
using BasicBSpline
using Plots; plotly()
```

`Plots.PlotlyBackend()`

## Notice

Some of notations in this page are our original, but these are well-considered results.
