On Hermite interpolation in \(R_d\). (English) Zbl 1137.41301

Summary: We deal with the problem of “minimal Hermite interpolation”. That is, given a number \(k\) of distinct points in \(R_d\) and the values of several derivatives at this point, we want to find a subspace of minimal dimension, where this interpolation problem has a solution, independent of the choice of points. In Section 2, we present some results on such subspaces in the particular cases of two points and some or all partial derivatives of the first order. In Section 3, we obtain some general upper bounds on the dimension of interpolation subspaces.
