Abstract: We analytically investigate univariate C1 continuous cubic L1 interpolating splines calculated by minimizing an L1 spline functional based on the second derivative on 5-point windows. Specifically, we link geometric properties of the data points in the windows with linearity, convexity and oscillation properties of the resulting L1 spline. These analytical results provide the basis for a computationally efficient algorithm for calculation of L1 splines on 5-point windows.
Keywords: convexity; cubic L1 spline; 5-point window; interpolation; linearity; locally calculated; oscillation; second-derivative-based; univariate
