Interpolate 1D (Polynomial) (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: January 12, 2018

    Interpolates or extrapolates a function f by using a polynomial function. The polynomial function passes through all the points formed by arrays of dependent and independent values.

    The polynomial method is not suitable for exploratory calculation. Compared with the spline method, the polynomial method yields the interpolation result with extreme derivatives.

    x is monotonic?

    A Boolean that specifies whether the values of the independent variable increase monotonically with the index.

    True The values of the independent variable increase monotonically with the index. This node does not sort x or reorder y.
    False The values of the independent variable does not increase monotonically with the index. This node sorts x to be in ascending order and reorders y accordingly.

    This input is available only if you wire an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers to x or y.

    Default: False

    reset

    A Boolean that specifies whether to reset the internal state of the node.

    True Resets the internal state of the node.
    False Does not reset the internal state of the node.

    This input is available only if you wire a double-precision, floating-point number to x or y.

    Default: False

    datatype_icon

    y

    Tabulated values of the dependent variable.

    This input accepts a double-precision, floating-point number or a 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    When x and y are 1D arrays of double-precision, floating-point numbers, the length of x must equal the length of y.

    datatype_icon

    x

    Tabulated values of the independent variable.

    This input accepts a double-precision, floating-point number or a 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    When x and y are 1D arrays of double-precision, floating-point numbers, the length of x must equal the length of y.

    datatype_icon

    xi

    Points at which the interpolation or extrapolation is performed.

    This input accepts a double-precision, floating-point number or a 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    If the value of xi is in the range of x, the node performs interpolation. Otherwise, the node performs extrapolation. If xi is too far from the range of x, the extrapolation error may be large. It is not a satisfactory extrapolation.

    datatype_icon

    ntimes

    Number of times that this node interpolates values repeatedly and evenly between each x element to generate xi used. ntimes determines the locations of the interpolation values.

    This input yields interpolated values between every y element when xi is empty. The node ignores ntimes if you wire the xi input.

    This input is available only if you wire an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers to xi.

    Default: 1

    datatype_icon

    sample length

    Length of each set of data. The node performs computation for each set of data.

    sample length must be greater than zero.

    This input is available only if you wire a double-precision, floating-point number to x or y.

    Default: 10

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    yi

    Interpolation of the function f at the points you specified.

    This output can return a double-precision, floating-point number or a 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    datatype_icon

    xi used

    Values of the independent variable at which this node computes interpolated values of the dependent variable.

    This output is available only if you wire an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers to xi.

    If xi is empty, xi used returns 2ntimes *(N - 1) + 1 points with (2ntimes - 1) points located evenly between each two adjacent elements in x, where N is the length of x. If you wire the xi input, xi used equals xi.

    datatype_icon

    interpolation error

    An estimate of the errors for each interpolated values.

    This output can return a double-precision, floating-point number or a 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Algorithm for Calculating the Interpolation Value

    This node calculates the interpolation value using the following equation: yi = P(x), where P is the unique polynomial of degree n - 1 that passes through the n points (xi, yi).

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported

    Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
