Abstract: Let E be a subset of R the real line and $ f:E \to R$. Necessary and sufficient conditions are derived for $ \inf (\left\Vert{D^r}x\right\Vert _{{L^\infty }}:x{\vert _E} = f)$ to have a solution. When restricted to quasi-uniform partitions E, necessary and sufficient conditions are derived for the solution to be in $ {L^\infty }$. For finite partitions E it is shown that a solution to the $ {L^\infty }$ infimum problem can be obtained by solving $ \inf (\left\Vert{D^r}x\right\Vert _{{L^p}}:x{\vert _E} = f)$ and letting p go to infinity. In this way it was discovered that solutions to the $ {L^\infty }$ problem could be chosen to be piecewise polynomial (of degree r or less). The solutions to the $ {L^p}$ problem are called $ {H^{r,p}}$-splines and were studied extensively by Golomb in [3].
