Abstract : B-splines of lowest total degrees on triangulations of nonuniform rectangular partitions are considered. Several interesting properties are discovered for the type-one setting. In particular, there are B-splines, that is splines with minimum supports, whose supports are concave, and B-splines do not necessarily form a partition of unity. (Author)
