Recent advances in the approximation of surfaces from scattered data
MetadataShow full item record
Advances in the mathematical theory behind Hardy's multiquadric method, development of methods for surfaces with tension parameters or which satisfy constraints, and methods for least squares approximation and subset selection are discussed. This report was prepared for the proceedings of The International Workshop on Multivariate Approximation, held in Santiago, Chile, in December 1986.

Mack, Thomas J. (Monterey California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2007-03);Certain methods of realizing numeric functions, such as sin(x) or x , in hardware involve a Taylor Series expansion or the CORDIC algorithm. These methods, while precise, are iterative and slow and may take on the order ...
Hayne, William John (Monterey, California.

A bound on the approximation error is also developed. The approximation is derived by a ...
