The function implements the Interval Testing Procedure for testing the difference between two functional populations evaluated on a uniform grid. Data are represented by means of the B-spline basis and the significance of each basis coefficient is tested with an interval-wise control of the Family Wise Error Rate. The default parameters of the basis expansion lead to the piece-wise interpolating function.

String vector indicating the basis used for the first phase of the algorithm. In this case equal to |

`test` |
String vector indicating the type of test performed. In this case equal to |

`mu` |
Difference between the first functional population and the second functional population under the null hypothesis (as entered by the user). |
