Interface Knot

    public interface Knot
    Controls the constructive parameter space for spline curves and surfaces. Each knot sequence is used for a dimension of the spline's parameter space. Thus, in a surface spline, there will be two knot sequences, one for each parameter (u, v). The ith, jth would be (ui, vj), where the original knot sequences were (ui) and (vj). Each knot of a spline curve or surface is described using a Knot.

      int getMultiplicity()
      The multiplicity of this knot used in the definition of the spline (with the same weight).
      double getValue()
      The value of the parameter at the knot of the spline.

      • getValue

        @UML(identifier="value",
             obligation=MANDATORY,
             specification=ISO_19107)
        double getValue()
        The value of the parameter at the knot of the spline. The sequence of knots shall be a nondecreasing sequence. That is, each knot's value in the sequence shall be equal to or greater than the previous knot's value. The use of equal consecutive knots is normally handled using the multiplicity.

        int getMultiplicity()
        The multiplicity of this knot used in the definition of the spline (with the same weight).
