An algorithm for selecting a good value for the parameter $$c$$ in radial basis function interpolation.(English)Zbl 0943.65017

The author studies the effect of a shape parameter $$c$$ on the quality of fit of the multiquadric, inverse multiquadric and Gaussian interpolants. He presents an algorithm for selecting an optimal value for $$c$$ and 15 numerical examples rich illustrated.
