Therefore, selection of an optimum method becomes the key for further analysis because different interpolation methods may give different results.
One of the most promising ways is to adopt proper curve interpolation algorithm in automated welding system [3].
We take the distribution scheme, in which the experiment has the smallest normalized cost function and the minimum MAEs of the inversion parameters, as the optimum scheme for the interpolations. It can be readily seen that the optimum scheme is Scheme (C) for Cressman interpolation, while those for PPM (2) and PPM (4) are both Scheme (D).
The caveat to any interpolation is that the original artist can always say no.
The first and second parts are the logarithmic interpolation for mass attenuation coefficient and the bilogarithmic interpolation for exposure buildup factor, respectively.
Fuzzy interpolation problem was posed by Zadeh [1].
Specifically, the Coons patch is obtained as follows: (1) consider the sum of the two linear interpolations between the two sets of opposite boundary lines; (2) from this subtract a bilinear interpolation through the four corner points.

The fractional operators that are herein defined have the purpose of seeking improved and more compact interpolations in engineering fields in general and in constitutive modelling in particular.
What is very important: two curves may have the same set of nodes but different N or [gamma] results in different interpolations (Fig.6-13).
The perturbations to pressure map features following high-degree interpolations (2x and 3x) are incremental but small.
Spatial interpolation is a fundamental task in Geosciences, where a number of data points with some kinds of known values such as elevations are used to predict unknown quantities of a continuous phenomenon for the prediction points.
