Input iy

Input

XYRange

The XY range to be interpolated.

Method method

Input

int

linear

Specifies the interpolation method.
Option list

  • linear:Linear
    Use linear interpolation method.
  • Cubic spline
    Use cubic spline interpolation method.
  • Cubic B-spline
    Use cubic B-spline interpolation method.
Number of Points npts

Input

int

100

Specifies the number of interpolated points

Output oy

Output

XYRange

<new>

The XY range of interpolation result.

See the syntax here.

Description

When a curve is cyclic, or periodic, it is improper to use ordinary interpolation because the algorithm interpolates the curve based on adjacent data points in the X coordinate. This causes the cycle trend to be lost.
