# Interpolate Matrix(x,y)

Return interpolated matrix for given inputs

GNC/Controls

## Description

The Interpolate Matrix(x,y) block interpolates a two-dimensional array of matrices.

This two-dimensional case assumes the matrix is defined as a function of two independent variables, x = [ x1 x2 x3... xi xi+1 ... xn] and y = [ y1 y2 y3 ... yj yj+1 ... ym]. For given values of x and y, four matrices are interpolated. Then for xi < x < xi+1 and yj < y < yj+1, the output matrix is given by

where the two interpolation fractions are denoted by

and

In the two-dimensional case, the interpolation is carried out first on x and then y.

The matrix to be interpolated should be four dimensional, the first two dimensions corresponding to the matrix at each value of x and y. For example, if you have four matrices A, B, C, and D defined at (x = 0.0,y = 1.0), (x = 0.0,y = 3.0), (x = 1.0,y = 1.0) and (x = 1.0,y = 3.0), then the input matrix is given by

matrix(:,:,1,1) = A;

matrix(:,:,1,2) = B;

matrix(:,:,2,1) = C;

matrix(:,:,2,2) = D;
