### Interpolation on an unstructured (mostly-structured) grid in 4D+

I frequently need to perform interpolations on an unstructured grid. Mostly, with the purpose of filling grid holes and then later continue with regular grid interpolations. Mathematica V9 and V10 ...

### InterpolationOrder has no effect on ListContourPlot when the data is of the form {x,y,f[x,y]}

This is related to the issue brought up here, if you want to mark it as duplicate feel free to do so, but it is slightly separate. Take two sets of data, identical except for the form, ...

### Accuracy of Chebyshev Interpolation

I have been looking at how to interpolate a function using Chebyshev polynomials. There are several good posts such as this one by Michael E2 and this one by J. M. There is also an example in the help ...

### Interpolate throughout a 3d data list without extrapolation

I have a 3D list of data for which I'd like to plot an interpolated surface. There are several ways to achieve this, but none I cannot find a method which ONLY plots the ENTIRE interpolated surface ...

### Evaluation of Mod of InterpolatingFunction prevents discontinuity processing by Plot

While trying out @MichaelSeifert's answer to Eliminating Discontinuities When Using Mod with NDSolve and Plot for Oscillators, I came across this odd behavior. Depending on how an ...

### N[Integrate] failing to return an accurate result from an interpolated integrand

I need to N[Integrate] a function Cos[alpha*x]*f(x) between x=0 and 30 at increasing alpha-values. Here f(x) is an interpolated function derived from a set of 120 ...

### Cubic polynomial interpolation with velocities listed rather than some points

I am trying to use the function BSplineFunction[] to create a natural cubic spline. Normally what is done is that you specify "SplineDegree -> 3" and include a list of points and it will carry out ...

### Parallel evaluation of RandomVariate for an InterpolatingFunction

I need to generate a lot of point according to a given distribution. I don't have an analytic form of this distribution so I am using an InterpolatingFunction of ~100 points computed numerically. I ...

### Reducing a FEM 3D Interpolation Function to a 2D Interpolation Function

I'm trying to solve the heat equation in 3D using FEM and back out a slice in the xz plane. My problem is when I define a function that is a slice in the xz plane it uses the full 3D interpolation ...

### Multivariate polynomial data fitting formula

A short description： consider $f(x,y,z)=x^2+y^2-z^2$ we can know that $f(1,0,1)=0,f(0,1,1)=0$ ,etc. so we can get the roots of this polynomial. Now if given the roots of polynomial, how to solve ...
