## Class HermiteInterpolator

• All Implemented Interfaces:
UnivariateDifferentiableVectorFunction, UnivariateVectorFunction

public class HermiteInterpolator
extends Object
implements UnivariateDifferentiableVectorFunction
Polynomial interpolator using both sample values and sample derivatives.

The interpolation polynomials match all sample points, including both values and provided derivatives. There is one polynomial for each component of the values vector. All polynomials have the same degree. The degree of the polynomials depends on the number of points and number of derivatives at each point. For example the interpolation polynomials for n sample points without any derivatives all have degree n-1. The interpolation polynomials for n sample points with the two extreme points having value and first derivative and the remaining points having value only all have degree n+1. The interpolation polynomial for n sample points with value, first and second derivative for all points all have degree 3n-1.

• ### Method Detail

public void addSamplePoint(double x,
double[]... value)
throws MathIllegalArgumentException,
MathRuntimeException

This method must be called once for each sample point. It is allowed to mix some calls with values only with calls with values and first derivatives.

The point abscissae for all calls must be different.

Parameters:
x - abscissa of the sample point
value - value and derivatives of the sample point (if only one row is passed, it is the value, if two rows are passed the first one is the value and the second the derivative and so on)
Throws:
MathIllegalArgumentException - if the abscissa difference between added point and a previous point is zero (i.e. the two points are at same abscissa)
MathRuntimeException - if the number of derivatives is larger than 20, which prevents computation of a factorial
• #### getPolynomials

public PolynomialFunction[] getPolynomials()
throws MathIllegalArgumentException
Compute the interpolation polynomials.
Returns:
interpolation polynomials array
Throws:
MathIllegalArgumentException - if sample is empty
• #### value

public double[] value(double x)
throws MathIllegalArgumentException
Interpolate value at a specified abscissa.

Calling this method is equivalent to call the value methods of all polynomials returned by getPolynomials, except it does not build the intermediate polynomials, so this method is faster and numerically more stable.

Specified by:
value in interface UnivariateVectorFunction
Parameters:
x - interpolation abscissa
Returns:
interpolated value
Throws:
MathIllegalArgumentException - if sample is empty
• #### value

public DerivativeStructure[] value(DerivativeStructure x)
throws MathIllegalArgumentException
Interpolate value at a specified abscissa.

Calling this method is equivalent to call the value methods of all polynomials returned by getPolynomials, except it does not build the intermediate polynomials, so this method is faster and numerically more stable.

Specified by:
value in interface UnivariateDifferentiableVectorFunction
Parameters:
x - interpolation abscissa
Returns:
interpolated value
Throws:
MathIllegalArgumentException - if sample is empty
• #### derivatives

public double[][] derivatives(double x,
int order)
throws MathIllegalArgumentException,
NullArgumentException
Interpolate value and first derivatives at a specified abscissa.
Parameters:
x - interpolation abscissa
order - maximum derivation order
Returns:
interpolated value and derivatives (value in row 0, 1st derivative in row 1, ... nth derivative in row n)
Throws:
MathIllegalArgumentException - if sample is empty
NullArgumentException - if x is null
