Physical Basis Functions

    I need to know because I'm in the process of applying for a PhD which uses these things and I don't wanna seem like an idiot in correspondence with the supervisor. I have a vague idea of what they might be, but, really, I need some concise clarity from one of you knowledgeable folk.

    Thanks
