    Continuity degree of spline curves?

    I'm trying to solve a question that simply asks what the degree of smoothness (I assume this is the continuity degree) is for certain spline curves.

    For a cardinal spline and a Kochnaek-Bartels spline:

    Degree of polynomial: 2n - 1
    Gives continuity degree of: C^(n-1)

    For a B-spline:

    Degree of polynomial: d - 1
    Gives continuity degree: C^(d-2)

    Are these correct?

    I've tried to find what the continuity degree is for the Bézier curve, but I can't find it anywhere.

    A Bezier curve is a cubic spline. d- 1= 3.
