MetadataShow full item record
One considers and investigates the notion of natural spline functions of even degree, satisfying given derivative-interpolating conditions on simple knots. By using such spline functions we shall develop some theory and algorithms for the numerical solution of a class of delay differential equations. It will be shown that such kind of spline functions are very suitable for the numerical treatment of delay differential equations with initial conditions.
