Monograph, appeared in June 2001:

Multivariate Polysplines. Applications to Numerical and Wavelet Analysis’, Academic Press,  500 pages, seehttp://www.harcourt-international.com/catalogue/title.cfm?ISBN=0124224903or see how it looks like in Cover.

See some chapters:  Table of Contents, Chapter 1 which is the Introduction;  Chapter 6  containing  applications of the polysplines to magnetic data and to CAGD data,  Chapter 13  which contains an exposition of the Micchelli's theory of cardinal L-splines,  and  Chapter 16  containing a brief review of Chui's cardinal spline wavelet analysis.
