# norder: Order of a B-spline In fda: Functional Data Analysis

 norder R Documentation

## Order of a B-spline

### Description

norder = number of basis functions minus the number of interior knots.

### Usage

``````norder(x, ...)
## S3 method for class 'fd'
norder(x, ...)
## S3 method for class 'basisfd'
norder(x, ...)
## Default S3 method:
norder(x, ...)

#norder.bspline(x, ...)

#NOTE:  The following is required by CRAN rules that
# function names like "as.numeric" must follow the documentation
# standards for S3 generics, even when they are not.
# Please ignore the following line:
## S3 method for class 'bspline'
norder(x, ...)
``````

### Arguments

 `x` Either a basisfd object or an object containing a basisfd object as a component. `...` optional arguments currently unused

### Details

norder throws an error of basisfd[['type']] != 'bspline'.

### Value

An integer giving the order of the B-spline.

### Examples

``````  bspl1.1 <- create.bspline.basis(norder=1, breaks=0:1)

stopifnot(norder(bspl1.1)==1)

stopifnot(norder(fd(0, basisobj=bspl1.1))==1)

stopifnot(norder(fd(rep(0,4)))==4)

stopifnot(norder(list(fd(rep(0,4))))==4)
## Not run:
norder(list(list(fd(rep(0,4)))))
Error in norder.default(list(list(fd(rep(0, 4))))) :
input is not a 'basisfd' object and does not have a 'basisfd'
component.

## End(Not run)

stopifnot(norder(create.bspline.basis(norder=1, breaks=c(0,.5, 1))) == 1)

stopifnot(norder(create.bspline.basis(norder=2, breaks=c(0,.5, 1))) == 2)

# Default B-spline basis:  Cubic spline:  degree 3, order 4,
# 21 breaks, 19 interior knots.
stopifnot(norder(create.bspline.basis()) == 4)

# these five lines throw an error of for a nocran check
# if (!CRAN()) {
#   norder(create.fourier.basis(c(0,12) ))
# Error in norder.bspline(x) :
# object x is of type = fourier;  'norder' is only defined for type = 'bspline'
# }
