## S3 method for class 'fd'
knots(Fn, interior=TRUE, ...)
## S3 method for class 'fdSmooth'
knots(Fn, interior=TRUE, ...)
## S3 method for class 'basisfd'
knots(Fn, interior=TRUE, ...)

Arguments

Fn

an object of class basisfd or containing such an object

interior

logical:

if TRUE, Fn[["params"]] are returned.

Else, nord <- norder(Fn); rng <- Fn[['rangeval']]; return c(rep(rng[1], nord), Fn[["params"]], rep(rng[2], nord))

...

ignored

Details

The interior knots of a bspline basis are stored in the params component. The remaining knots are in the rangeval component, with mulltiplicity norder(Fn).

Value

Numeric vector. If 'interior' is TRUE, this is the params component of the bspline basis. Otherwise, params is bracketed by rep(rangeval, norder(basisfd).
