bidimensional cubic shepard interpolation evaluation

Calling Sequence

[zp [,dzpdx, dzpdy [,d2zpdxx,d2zpdxy,d2zpdyy]]] = eval_cshep2d(xp, yp, tl_coef)


xp, yp

two real vectors (or matrices) of the same size


a tlist scilab structure (of type cshep2d) defining a cubic Shepard interpolation function (named S in the following)


vector (or matrix) of the same size than xp and yp, evaluation of the interpolant S at these points


vectors (or matrices) of the same size than xp and yp, evaluation of the first derivatives of S at these points


vectors (or matrices) of the same size than xp and yp, evaluation of the second derivatives of S at these points


This is the evaluation routine for cubic Shepard interpolation function computed with cshep2d, that is :


The interpolant S is C2 (twice continuously differentiable) but is also extended by zero for (x,y) far enough the interpolation points. This leads to a discontinuity in a region far outside the interpolation points, and so, is not cumbersome in practice (in a general manner, evaluation outside interpolation points (i.e. extrapolation) leads to very inaccurate results).


// see example section of cshep2d

// this example shows the behavior far from the interpolation points ...
deff("z=f(x,y)","z = 1+ 50*(x.*(1-x).*y.*(1-y)).^2")
x = linspace(0,1,10);
[X,Y] = ndgrid(x,x);
X = X(:); Y = Y(:); Z = f(X,Y);
S = cshep2d([X Y Z]);
// evaluation inside and outside the square [0,1]x[0,1]
m = 40;
xx = linspace(-1.5,0.5,m);
[xp,yp] = ndgrid(xx,xx);
zp = eval_cshep2d(xp,yp,S);
// compute facet (to draw one color for extrapolation region
// and another one for the interpolation region)
[xf,yf,zf] = genfac3d(xx,xx,zp);
colors = 2*ones(1,size(zf,2));
// indices corresponding to facet in the interpolation region
ind=find( mean(xf,"r")>0 & mean(xf,"r")<1 & mean(yf,"r")>0 & mean(yf,"r")<1 );
plot3d(xf,yf,list(zf,colors), flag=[2 6 4])
