Vector-Valued Polynomial and Spline Approximation
Blended interpolation of vector-valued functions is discussed relative to their applications in the construction of finite elements, mesh generation and table look-up of thermodynamic properties of a gas or liquid. The invertibi1ity of two isoparametric transformations is investigated.
