Given a sequence of numbers called nodes, and for each a second number we are looking for a function P so that A pair is called a data point and P is called an interpolant for the data points. One Dimensional Case n k y x P k k ,..., 1 , ) ( = = n n x x x x < < < < - 1 2 1 k x k y ) , ( k k y x
Suppose we have a table like this, which gives some values of an unknown function f . Example 0 0 1 0.8415 2 0.9093 3 0.1411 4 −0.7568 5 −0.9589 6 −0.2794 What value does the function have at, say, x = 2.5? Interpolation answers questions like this. Plot of the data points as given in the table k x k y ) , ( 3 3 y x ) , ( 4 4 y x

There are many different interpolation methods, including linear and polynomial . Some of the concerns to take into account when choosing an appropriate method are: How accurate is the method? How expensive is it? How smooth is the interpolant? How many data points are needed? Linear Interpolation
