Abstract

In the course of working on the preconditioning of $C^1$-bicubic collocation method, one has to deal with the $C^1$-bicubic splines. In this paper we are concerned with $C^1$-bicubic spline interpolant for a given function. We construct a basis for the space of $C^1$-bicubic splines for a given partition and find the $C^1$-bicubic spline interpolant for a given function defined on a set.
