If f(x) is the "quadratic spline" that is given by

[itex]f(x)= x^2[/itex] for [itex]0\le x\le 2[/itex], [itex]f(x)= 2x^2- 4x+ 4[/itex] for [itex]2\le x\le 3[/itex], etc. then x= 2 or, more properly, the point (2, 4) is a "knot".

Typically one wants a spline that interpolates given values. Often the knots are chosen at the "interpolation points" but not always.

"Knots" are the points where the "pieces" change. That is, where the formula changes.

Assume a B-spline with n+1 control points (0 to n) & d control points per curve(polynomial of degree (d-1)). The text says that B-Splines are defined only in the interval from knot value u

What you can do is add the "not a knot" condition- you require that the polynomials in the first two intervals at each end be exactly the same. That is, that two "knots" are, in fact,
