Abstract

Interpolation originally meant reading between the lines of a table. It is a basic problem in numerical mathematics, and a solution can be formulated as follows:

If distinct abscissas x0, x1, …, X n and corresponding values f0, f1, …, f n are given, find a function f(x) such that f(x i ) = f i and use f(p) as the value corresponding to the abscissa p.
