B„] = BP. This notation-^ defines B to be the (linear) operator that associates the Bezier curve with its control polygon. We say that the curve B [ b o , . . 9. The intermediate coefficients b[(^) are conveniently written into a triangular array of points, the de Casteljau scheme. We give the example of the cubic case: bl K hi b\ hi b3 bl b2 hi. 3) This triangular array of points seems to suggest the use of a two-dimensional array in writing code for the de Casteljau algorithm. That would be a waste of 1 Compare the comments by P.

Let C[a^ h\ be the set of all real-valued continuous functions defined over the interval \a^ h\ of the real axis. We can define addition and multiplication by a constant for elements /^,g € C[a, h\ by setting (af + Pg)(t) = af(t) + Pg(t) for all t 6 [a, b]. With these definitions, we can easily show that C[a^ b] forms a linear space over the reals. The same is true for the sets C^[^,fe],the sets of all realvalued functions defined over [a, b] that are fe-times continuously differentiable. Furthermore, for every k, C^^^ is a subspace of C^.
