Compute a basis for a natural cubic spline, using the parameterisation described by Royston and Parmar (2002). Used for flexible parametric survival models.
Vector of knot locations in increasing order, including the boundary knots at the beginning and end.
Vector of ordinates to compute the basis for.
The exact formula for the basis is given in
A matrix with one row for each ordinate and one column for each knot.
basis returns the basis, and
dbasis returns its derivative
with respect to
dfss are the same, but with the order of the
arguments swapped around for consistency with similar functions in other R
