Asked by pxg882 on 21 Feb 2013

Hi, I'm plotting the following set of data

x = [0.6 0.65 0.7 0.75 0.8 0.85 0.9 0.95 1.0]; y = [1.7764 1.4849 1.3076 1.1857 1.0957 1.0257 0.9698 0.9235 0.8845]; cs = spline(x,y); xx = linspace(0.6,1,401); yy = ppval(cs,xx); plot(x,y,'o',xx,yy,'-'); axis([0.6 1 0.8 1.8]) xlabel('n') ylabel('$-H(\eta_{\infty})$','interpreter','latex') legend('data','spline')

However, I know that for x=0.5 the data set tends asymptotically towards the y-axis. Is there a way I can add this into the plot whilst preserving the 'shape' of the interpolating spline? I've tried approximating this by adding in the point x=0.5 with say y=100, however the curve is not longer smooth.

Any help would be great.

Thanks.

Let Matlab decide how to make your plot look smooth:

myFun = @(x) ppval(cs,x) fplot(myFun,[0.5 1])

This does produce a smooth plot but it doesn't encapsulate the asymptotic behaviour of the function as x tends towards 0.5. Is there a way to force Matlab into taking behaviour into account?
