scipy.interpolate.spalde(x, tck)

Evaluate all derivatives of a B-spline.


Given the knots and coefficients of a cubic B-spline compute all derivatives up to order k at a point (or set of points).


tck – A length 3 sequence describing the given spline (See splev). x – A point or a set of points at which to evaluate the derivatives.

Note that t(k) <= x <= t(n-k+1) must hold for each x.

Outputs: (results, )

results – An array (or a list of arrays) containing all derivatives
up to order k inclusive for each point x.
