Abstract: Analogous to the quadratic B-spline curve, a piecewise quadratic trigonometric polynomial curve is presented in this paper. The quadratic trigonometric polynomial curve has $C^2$ continuity, while the quadratic B-spline curve has $C^1$ continuity. The quadratic trigonometric polynomial curve is closer to the given control polygon than the quadratic B-spline curve.
