Interpolation and Curve Fitting (Lesson 6) Say you want to estimate values in between your measure data points o To do this in MATLAB, you use interpolation, those methods that draw lines or curves between measured (or observed) points so that you can estimate intermediate values. o Some things are hard or even impossible to measure, this is when interpolation comes We cannot just Interpolate with an nth order polynomial o For N data point, you will ALWAYS find a 1 st degree polynomial. o Interpolation polynomial goes through all data points
