In this paper we investigate spline wavelets on the interval with homogeneous boundary conditions. Starting with a pair of families of B-splines on the unit interval, we give a general method to explicitly construct wavelets satisfying the desired homogeneous boundary conditions. On the basis of a new development of multiresolution analysis, we show that these wavelets form Riesz bases of certain Sobolev spaces. The wavelet bases investigated in this paper are suitable for numerical solutions of ordinary and partial differential equations.
