As n , it can be shown that ) ( ) ( x P x f n (at some points x in [ 1, 1] ). Note: if the points of interpolation are not constrained to be equally spaced, then it is possible to choose the points of interpolation x i so that ) ( ) ( lim x f x P n n = . However, there is no known rule that indicates how to choose appropriate points of interpolation x i to guarantee such convergence of the interpolating polynomials for arbitrary continuous functions ) ( x f ....
