Interpolation Definition Interpolation Definition It is a process of obtaining new data within the given range of other known data or in other words we can say that it is a process of getting an unknown price by using other related known values that are present in the sequence with the unknown values. Mostly interpolation is used in situation where number of values is missing data. For example: If there is some bond tables list in sequence of 2, 4 and 6years. Here interpolation is used to determine the yield for the 3rd and 5th year. We can find the error with the help of interpolation. It is also known as linear interpolation. Interpolation is also defined as the values of a function for the limited number of values, where the variables are independent. Different types of interpolation method are:Piecewise constant interpolation, Linear interpolation, Polynomial interpolation, Know More About Pre Algebra Practice

Spline interpolation, And interpolation via Gaussian processes. Piecewise constant interpolation is also known as simplest interpolation, if some values are given, out of these given values Piecewise constant interpolation is used to located the nearest values, and write the same value. In case of higher dimensional multivariate interpolation, this could be very easy to find its speed and simplicity. Linear interpolation is one of the simplest methods in the interpolation. It takes two data points (ma, na) and (mb, nn) then the linear interpolation is given by, n = na + (nb - na) (m - ma), at the given point (m, n), (mb - ma) Linear interpolation is very fast and easy but not precise. There is a big disadvantage of a linear interpolation that it is not differentiable at any constant point ‘xk’. There is some error in linear interpolation so that linear interpolation is not very precise. The function which we want to interpolate by the value ‘g’ and let ‘x’ lies between ‘ma’ and ‘mb’, so the linear interpolation error is, |f(x) – g(x)| ≤ C (mb, na)2, The linear interpolation error is directly proportional to the square of the distance between the points. Polynomial interpolation is generalized form of linear interpolation. It is also proportional to the distance between the data points and which is also proportional to the power of ‘n’.

In spline interpolation low-degree polynomials is used in each of the intervals and after we select the polynomials piece so that they fit easily together. Gaussian process is used to pass exactly through the given points and also used in the regression process, i.e. used for fitting a curve through the data. It is also powerful non-linear interpolation. Now we will discuss trigonometric interpolation. In the trigonometric interpolation it is not possible to change the nature of the curve. Slope value of the trigonometric interpolation is determined by the interpolated values. If we want control over the interpolated curves then we use polynomial. The points which are distributed are non-linear points. In case of cubic interpolation we are necessary to develop a cubic function. The cubical function is in the form F(x) = ax2 + bx2 + cx + d, If this form is applied in the interpolant, then we get the other form of cubic interpolation. P1 = am3 + bm2 + ct + d, The cubic function â€˜pâ€™ must grow from 0 to 1.
