To study the accuracy of cubic spline interpolation, use a package available to construct interpolating splines to y = 1/(1+ x 2 ) on 3 ≤ x ≤ 3. Use evenly spaced nodes on [3, 3] to generate data, say with 10 and 20 subdivisions. Then check the accuracy of the spline function at four times that many points. Do this for the cubic natural interpolating spline function, and Discuss your results. How does the error behave as the number of subdivisions is doubled?...
