Iteration and polynomial interpolation
Thinking about recent ad--hoc experiments with polynomial iteration.
However, there is a classical poly approx method that does successive
refinement, adding one approximation point at a time. This would be
Newton interpolation. It's not really what I had in mind though..
Overview from "Inleiding tot de numerieke wiskunde" - Adhemar
- Linear equation - Vandermonde matrix
- Lagange: sum of base polynomials f_n at x=x_n and 0 at x=x_i, i!=n
- Newton: successive approximation, one data point per step +
specialization for equidistant, ...
- Hermite: also derivatives
