### Piecewise Polynomial Interpolation

Given some data pairs $(x_i,y_i)$, with $i=0,...,m$, and a degree $r$, I wish to build a piecewise polynomial function to interpolate these data. That interpolation should be continuous, and, on every ...

### Can NDSolve handle discontinuous data?

Backslide introduced in 9.0, persisting through 11.0.1 It is possible to numerically solve a differential equation if not-smooth data are involved? For example the following instruction return the ...

### PiecewiseExpand doesn't take all kind of assumptions

Running PiecewiseExpand[expr, assum] does not work with all kind of assumptions. For example, the following line will not split the expression with absolute values in the chambers, considering m1=m2. ...

### Piecewise conditions with a parametric PDE

I'm using ParametricNDsolve to check best fit of a model (function Eb1) with some data, and I have four free parameters I want to test. I can easily construct a Parametric solution between the two ...

### Define function that goes from one point to another parametrically

I have two points p1 and p2, and I want to get the parametric equation of a linear function that passes through those, but ranging from one point to another. For example, if I have 2 points {0,0} and ...

### Fitting piecewise functions

I have several large data sets which follow the following pattern: A position is measured, a force is applied until a new equilibrium is found. I'd like to find a fit for the position, at least at the ...

### Manipulating a piecewise function

A while ago I posted a question regarding differential equations. It was supposed to model heat transfer. We've refined our model a bit (using numerical methods now). Our code now looks like this: <...
I am trying to solve $$u_t=\frac{1}{4}u_{xx}$$ $-\infty<x<\infty,\: t>0$ With the initial condition $u(x,0)=\phi(x)$ where  \phi(x)= \left\{ \begin{array}{lr} 1 & |x|&...
