Interpolation through an iterative scheme. (English) Zbl 0615.65005

Let \(D_ n\) be the set of dyadic rationals \(m/2^ n\) where m is an arbitrary relative integer. Let y(t) be a function defined on \(D_ 0\). The author extends y(t) from \(D_ n\) to \(D_{n+1}\) by using the scheme \[ y(t)=[-y(t-3h)+9y(t-h)+9y(t+h)-y(t+3h)]/16,\quad with\quad h=2^{-n- 1}. \] The basic properties of this iterative scheme, which generates almost twice differentiable functions, are presented. A fundamental interpolating function F(t), arising from the sequence \(F(0)=1\) and \(F(n)=0\), is studied. The application to curve fitting is also considered.
