Authors of this Website
I am a PhD student at the Institute for Parallel and Distributed Systems (IPVS), University of Stuttgart, Germany. I have worked on B-splines since my bachelor’s thesis, which is about spline approximation of scattered data using quasi-interpolation with B-splines. My master’s thesis treats gradient-based optimization using different types of hierarchical basis functions on sparse grids, one of which are B-splines. The PhD thesis continues this work, but focuses solely on B-splines. During my time as a PhD student, I have developed a profound “B-spline mania” (which is yet to be diagnosed by a doctor), keeping claiming that “B-splines are the best basis functions of the world” and propagandize their superiority at any given opportunity, which is ultimately the sole reason for the creation of this website 😉
