Hermite Interpolation 1D (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: March 15, 2017

Performs one-dimensional interpolation using the cubic Hermite interpolation method based on the lookup table defined by arrays of tabulated values of dependent and independent variables.

Programming Patterns

You can use the Evaluate Interpolating Polynomial node to find the interpolated values using the piecewise polynomial.

datatype_icon

Y

Tabulated values of the dependent variable.

datatype_icon

X

Tabulated values of the independent variable. The length of X must equal the length of Y.

datatype_icon

xi

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

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

Interpolated values that correspond to the independent variable values.

datatype_icon

piecewise polynomial

A cluster that contains the x domain endpoint values and coefficients of the piecewise interpolating polynomial.

datatype_icon

x locations

The x domain endpoint values of the piecewise interpolating polynomial.

If x locations is of size N, the coefficients array should contain N - 1 rows of polynomial coefficients.

datatype_icon

coefficients

A 2D array of interpolating polynomial coefficients.

Row i of coefficients contains the coefficients for the interpolating polynomial between elements xi and xi + 1 of x locations.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Advantage of Using the Cubic Hermite Interpolation Method

The cubic Hermite interpolation method guarantees that the first derivative of the interpolant is continuous and sets the derivative at the endpoints in order to preserve the original shape and monotonicity of the Y data.
