Class FieldHermiteInterpolator<T extends FieldElement<T>>

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.commons.math3.analysis.interpolation.FieldHermiteInterpolator<T>
Type Parameters:
T - Type of the field elements.

public class FieldHermiteInterpolator<T extends FieldElement<T>>
extends Object

Polynomial interpolator using both sample values and sample derivatives.

The interpolation polynomials match all sample points, including both values and provided derivatives. There is one polynomial for each component of the values vector. All polynomials have the same degree. The degree of the polynomials depends on the number of points and number of derivatives at each point. For example the interpolation polynomials for n sample points without any derivatives all have degree n-1. The interpolation polynomials for n sample points with the two extreme points having value and first derivative and the remaining points having value only all have degree n+1. The interpolation polynomial for n sample points with value, first and second derivative for all points all have degree 3n-1.

Method Detail

addSamplePoint

public void addSamplePoint(T x,
                           T[]... value)
                    throws ZeroException,
                           MathArithmeticException,
                           DimensionMismatchException,
                           NullArgumentException
Add a sample point.

This method must be called once for each sample point. It is allowed to mix some calls with values only with calls with values and first derivatives.

The point abscissae for all calls must be different.

Parameters:
x - abscissa of the sample point
value - value and derivatives of the sample point (if only one row is passed, it is the value, if two rows are passed the first one is the value and the second the derivative and so on)
Throws:
ZeroException - if the abscissa difference between added point and a previous point is zero (i.e. the two points are at same abscissa)
MathArithmeticException - if the number of derivatives is larger than 20, which prevents computation of a factorial
DimensionMismatchException - if derivative structures are inconsistent
NullArgumentException - if x is null

value

public T[] value(T x)
                                  throws NoDataException,
                                         NullArgumentException
Interpolate value at a specified abscissa.

Parameters:
x - interpolation abscissa
Returns:
interpolated value
Throws:
NoDataException - if sample is empty
NullArgumentException - if x is null

derivatives

public T[][] derivatives(T x,
                         int order)
                                          throws NoDataException,
                                                 NullArgumentException
Interpolate value and first derivatives at a specified abscissa.

Parameters:
x - interpolation abscissa
order - maximum derivation order
Returns:
interpolated value and derivatives (value in row 0, 1st derivative in row 1, ... nth derivative in row n)
Throws:
NoDataException - if sample is empty
NullArgumentException - if x is null
