In thiele interpolation equation what is mean by X,Y,Xi,
i want to remove noise from image by using newton thiele interpolation model. please suggest me the ideas... thanks in advance.....

One more issue with mqspline. In code line 84, it should be
yp(1) = (3*d(1) - yp(2))/2;
instead of
yp(1) = -(3*d(1) - yp(2))/2;

The additional minus is a typo in Judd (1998), "Numerical Methods in Economis". I asked him and he confirmed. In the original paper (Schumaker (1983), "On Shape Preserving Quadratic Spline Interpolation") Kenneth Judd is referring to, there is no minus.

Obviously, this matters for the interpolation at the left end.

Kind regards,

Thanks a lot for the codes. I'm using mqspline.m.

I think that there is an error in both lines 126 and 129. It should be

eps = x(klo) + h*(b-del)/(b-a);
eps = x(khi) + h*(a-del)/(b-a);

instead of

eps = x(klo) + 2*h*(b-del)/(b-a);
eps = x(khi) + 2*h*(a-del)/(b-a);

See Schumaker (1983), "On Shape Preserving Quadratic Spline Interpolation", or the exposition in Judd (1998), "Numerical Methods in Economis", for the formulae.

Kind regards,

Sorry for my last comment. Everything is alright. My mistake. Data were not equally spaced.

Very good utilities. Thanks

in newtint.m file there is an error in Everett's method (line 163) and Stirling's method (line 136).

Error msg: newtint: A(I,J): row index out of bounds; value 5 out of bound 4

I tried to execute the following command:

y = [308.6 362.6 423.3 491.4];
x = [0.055389 0.047485 0.040914 0.035413];
c = 4; %c=3
