<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fbspline_005feval"></a>Function: <em>int</em> <strong>gsl_bspline_eval</strong> <em>(const double <var>x</var>, gsl_vector * <var>B</var>, gsl_bspline_workspace * <var>w</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><p>This function evaluates all B-spline basis functions at the position
<var>x</var> and stores them in the vector <var>B</var>, so that the <em>i</em>-th element
is <em>B_i(x)</em>. The vector <var>B</var> must be of length
<em>n = nbreak + k - 2</em>.  This value may also be obtained by calling
<code>gsl_bspline_ncoeffs</code>.
Computing all the basis functions at once is more efficient than
computing them individually, due to the nature of the defining
recurrence relation.

<dl>
<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fbspline_005feval_005fnonzero"></a>Function: <em>int</em> <strong>gsl_bspline_eval_nonzero</strong> <em>(const double <var>x</var>, gsl_vector * <var>Bk</var>, size_t * <var>istart</var>, size_t * <var>iend</var>, gsl_bspline_workspace * <var>w</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><p>This function evaluates all potentially nonzero B-spline basis
functions at the position <var>x</var> and stores them in the vector <var>Bk</var>, so
that the <em>i</em>-th element is <em>B_(istart+i)(x)</em>.
The last element of <var>Bk</var> is <em>B_(iend)(x)</em>.  The vector <var>Bk</var> must be
of length <em>k</em>.  By returning only the nonzero basis functions,
this function
allows quantities involving linear combinations of the <em>B_i(x)</em>
to be computed without unnecessary terms
(such linear combinations occur, for example,
when evaluating an interpolated function).
