These are draft chapters of a monograph which we have worked on from 1999 through 2005. The monograph discusses polynomial splines, their use in extended linear modeling, and theoretical properties of such spline models. The monograph is currently incomplete. In particular:

Nevertheless, we believe that parts of this monograph may be useful. This material may or may not be revised in the future.
