SPL_INTERP

SPL_INTERP

Given the arrays X and Y, which tabulate a function (with the Xi in ascending order), and given the array Y2, which is the output from SPL_INIT, and given an input value of X2, the SPL_INTERP function returns a cubic-spline interpolated value for the given value of XI.

Examples


To create a spline interpolation over a tabulated set of data, [Xi, Yi], first create the tabulated data. In this example, Xi will be in the range [0.0, 2π] and Yi in the range [sin(0.0), sin(2π)].

X = (FINDGEN(21)/20.0) * 2.0 * !PI
Y = SIN(X)
; Calculate interpolating cubic spline:
Y2 = SPL_INIT(X, Y)
; Define the X values P at which we desire interpolated Y values:
X2= FINDGEN(11)/11.0 * !PI
; Calculate the interpolated Y values corresponding to X2[i]:
result = SPL_INTERP(X, Y, Y2, X2)
PRINT, result

IDL prints:

 0.00000  0.281733  0.540638  0.755739  0.909613  0.989796
 0.989796  0.909613  0.755739  0.540638  0.281733

The exact solution vector is sin(X2).

To interpolate a line in the XY plane, see SPLINE_P.

Syntax


Result = SPL_INTERP( X, Y, Y2, X2 [, /DOUBLE] )

Return Value


Returns either single- or double-precision floating result of the same structure as X2.

Arguments


X

An input array that specifies the tabulated points in ascending order.

Y

An input array that specifies the values of the tabulate function corresponding to Xi.

Y2

The output from SPL_INIT for the specified X and Y.

X2

The input value for which an interpolated value is desired. X can be scalar or an array of values. The result of SPL_INTERP will have the same structure.

Keywords


DOUBLE

Set this keyword to force the computation to be done in double-precision arithmetic.
