    Introduction

    This package provides an implementation of Lagrange interpolating polynomials.

    The focus of this package is simplicity: It’s small, and there is no dependency on complex 3rd party packages. Computation happens according to Neville’s algorithm.

    Example

    Code (plotPoint function not included):

    var interpolatingPolynomial = require('interpolating-polynomial'),
        f = interpolatingPolynomial([[-2, 2],
                                     [-1, -0.5],
                                     [0, 0.5],
                                     [1.5, -1.5]]);
    
    for (x = -2; x < 2; x += 0.000001) {
        plotPoint(x, f(x));
    }
    

    Result:

    Plot

    For bad input, behavior is undefined.

    Reading

    Coding conventions

    • Code needs to validate with JSLint.

    • Comments are in Markdown.

    • Avoid constructors (JS is classless), don’t throw exceptions (not necessary in JS).

    • Versioning: major.minor.bug-fix

      Incompatible changes to the API mandate an update of the major version.

      Keep version up to date in:

      • Git tags

      • package.json
