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.

Default: False

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.

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

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

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.

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

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Understanding the Linear Interpolation Method

The linear interpolation method sets the interpolated values to points along the line segments connecting the x and y data points.

With the linear interpolation method, this node interpolates yi on the line segment that connects the two points (xj, xj + 1) when xi is located between the two points (xj, xj + 1) in x, as shown in the following figure.

In the previous figure, the following equation is true:

L j ( x ) = y j + y j + 1 y j x j + 1 x j ( x x j )
