Linear/linear rational spline interpolation
For a strictly monotone function y on [a, b] we describe the construction of an interpolating linear/linear rational spline S of smoothness class C 1. We show that for the linear/linear rational splines we obtain ¦S(xi ) − y(xi )¦8 = O(h 4) on uniform mesh xi = a + ih, i = 0,…, n. We prove also the superconvergence of order h3 for the first derivative and of order h2 for the second derivative of S in certain points. Numerical examples support the obtained theoretical results.
