### Interpolating polynomial given only Y values

Can we reconstruct a polynomial with only Y values? What if the number of Y values are far more than the degree of the polynomial? Also can we obtain the root of this polynomial with this Y's value ...

### On Convex Interpolation and distances

Let $C$ denote the class of all real-valued convex functions on $[0, 1]^2$. Fix $n \geq 2$ and points $x_1, \dots, x_n$ in $[0, 1]^2$. Let $S \subset R^n$ be defined by \begin{equation*} S := \...

### Find a smooth function with prescribed moments

In several contexts I’ve encountered variants of the following problem : let $m_0,m_1,m_2$ be real numbers such that $0 < m_1 < m_0$ and $\frac{m_1^2}{m_0} <m_2 < m_1$. Then, show that ...

### Fourier Interpolation

I have this Equation, that I modeled from my measurements and simulations. $I^{exp}_{l,m} = (\mathbf{F}^{H}.\mathbf{A}.I^{true})_{l,m}$; $H$ is the Hermitian transpose and $\mathbf{F}^{H}$ is a block ...

### There is a unique polynomial interpolating $f$ and its derivatives

I have questions on a similar topic here, here, and here, but this is a different question. It is well-known that a Hermite interpolation polynomial (where we sample the function and its derivatives ...

### Constructing an increasing function with prescribed values at three points

This should probably be very simple, but I'm just not very skilled in math :S. I want a function that takes one variable, x, ranging from 0-1. As the input approaches 0 so should the output. As the ...

### Given a set of sequences, compute a corresponding set of functions

Consider the following set of sequences: $S_k(n)= \begin{cases} 1 & \text{$n \equiv0\pmod{k}$}\\ 0 & \text{$n\not\equiv0\pmod{k}$}\\ \end{cases}$ I want to compute a set of ...

### What is the derivative of a Radial Basis Interpolation function?

A radial basis interpolation function is described as: $f(\textbf{x})=\sum_{k=1}^N c_k \phi(\lVert \textbf{x}-\textbf{x}_k \rVert_2), \ \textbf{x}\in\mathbb{R}^s$ where $\textbf{x}_k$ are the $N$ ...

### Fast way to compute barycentric lagrange interpolation

Is there any fast way to compute the barycentric Lagrange interpolation using matlab?
The polynomials $p(x) = 5x^3 - 27x^2 + 45x - 21$ and $q(x) = x^4 - 5x^3 + 8x^2 - 5x + 3$ both interpolate the points $(1,2) , (2,1) , (3,6), (4,47)$. Even though these polynomials are of different ...
