CHEBYSHEV_INTERP_1D Chebyshev Polynomial Interpolation in 1D

CHEBYSHEV_INTERP_1D is a MATLAB library which determines the combination of Chebyshev polynomials which interpolates a set of data, so that p(x(i)) = y(i).

CHEBYSHEV_INTERP_1D needs the R8LIB library. The test program needs the TEST_INTERP library.

Languages:

CHEBYSHEV_INTERP_1D is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version and a Python version.
