AB - The use of spline basis functions in solving least squares approximation problems is investigated. The question as to which are appropriate basis functions to use is discussed along with the reasons why the final choice was made. The Householder transformation method for solving the fixed knot spline approximation problem is examined. Descriptions of both an automatic procedure using function minimization and an interactive procedure using a graphics terminal for solving the variable knot spline approximation problem are given. In conclusion, numerical results using the interactive system are presented and analyzed.
