This paper discusses the generation of multivariate C functions with compact small supports by subdivision schemes. Following the construction of such a univariate function, called Up-function, by a non-stationary scheme based on masks of spline subdivision schemes of growing degrees, we term the multivariate functions we generate Up-like functions. We generate them by non-stationary schemes based on masks of three-directional box-splines of growing supports. To analyze the convergence and smoothness of these non-stationary schemes, we develop new tools which apply to a wider class of schemes than the class we study. With our method for achieving small compact supports, we obtain in the univariate case, Up-like functions with supports [0,1+ϵ] in comparison to the support [0,2] of the Up-function. Examples of univariate and bivariate Up-like functions are given. As in the univariate case, the construction of Up-like functions can motivate the generation of C compactly supported wavelets of small support in any dimension.
