05.01.1 05.01 Definition of Interpolation After reading this chapter, you should be able to: 1. Understand what Interpolation is. What is Interpolation? Many a times, a function   x f y is given only at discrete points such as     n n n n y x y x y x y x , , , ,...... , , , , 1 1 1 1 0 0 . How does one find the value of y at any other value of x ? Well, a continuous function   x f may be used to represent the 1 n data values with  x f passing through the 1 n points. Then one can find the value of y at any other value of x . This is called interpolation.
