Interpolation operators with applications. II. (English) Zbl 1172.41001

In this research exposition, some practical applications of blending interpolation are studied. Lagrange, Hermite and Birkhoff operators that interpolate a given function \(f\) and certain of its derivatives, defined on a given domain \(\Omega \subset\mathbb R^2\) are used. The authors first present a surface fitting technique under certain conditions of interpolation. This is followed by construction of roof-surfaces for large halls. Interpolatory type quadrature formulas have also been given [cf. L. F. Meyers and A. Sard, J. Math. Physics 29, 118–123 (1950; Zbl 0039.34201)]. Inverse interpolation method for approximate solution of non-linear equations has been discussed. Several examples have been given. The paper ends with a fairly complete list of 250 references.
