### Transcript

• 1. Interpolation Topic: Spline Interpolation Method Major: General
• 2. What is Interpolation ? Given (x 0 ,y 0 ), (x 1 ,y 1 ), …… (x n ,y n ), find the value of ‘y’ at a value of ‘x’ that is not given.
• 3. Interpolants
• Polynomials are the most common choice of interpolants because they are easy to:
• Evaluate
• Differentiate, and
• Integrate .
• 4. Why Splines ?
• 5. Why Splines ? Figure : Higher order polynomial interpolation is a bad idea
• 6. Linear Interpolation
• 7. Linear Interpolation (contd)
• 8. Example
• The upward velocity of a rocket is given as a function of time in Table 1. Find the velocity at t=16 seconds using linear splines.
Table : Velocity as a function of time Figure : Velocity vs. time data for the rocket example 901.67 30 602.97 22.5 517.35 20 362.78 15 227.04 10 0 0 m/s s v(t) t
