## Detailed Description

B-spline basis functions.

Follows treatment and notation from:

Weisstein, Eric W. 'B-Spline.' From MathWorld--A Wolfram Web Resource. <http://mathworld.wolfram.com/B-Spline.html>

$ (p+1) $-th order B-spline (or p degree polynomial) basis functions $ N_{i,p}(x), i = 0,1,2

knot vector of size $ p+n+2 $ defined at the increasingly sorted points $ (x_0, x_1

ratic B-spline has $ p=2 $, a cubic B-spline has $ p=3 $, etc.

The B-spline basis functions are defined recursively as follows:
