TOMS790
Bivariate Interpolation of Scattered Data


TOMS790 is a FORTRAN77 library which constructs an interpolant to scattered 2D data, by Robert Renka.

TOMS790 is similar to the algorithm employed in ACM TOMS algorithm 660, but achieves cubic precision (where the previous algorithm was only quadratic) and has C2 continuity.

TOMS790 is ACM TOMS Algorithm 790.

The original, true, correct version of this ACM TOMS algorithm is available in the TOMS subdirectory of the NETLIB web site.

Languages:

TOMS790 is available in a FORTRAN77 version and a FORTRAN90 version.

Examples and Tests:

TOMS790_PRB1 is a program which can be run interactively, and allows the user to specify the test data to be used, and other parameters.

TOMS790_PRB2 tests the package using data on a 20 by 20 uniform grid.
