I want to use Akima interpolation on series of points. I have those points in 3D [x, y, z]. But in all resources, I found, there is only f(x) and x (so [x,y]). In Natrual Cubic Spline I am using this approach: (matrix 18) and I can calculate curve for 1, 2.. N dimension the same way... Is something like this possible for Akima ? Thanks... PS: I am not math skilled, so maybe this question is totally out.. for that, I am sorry :)
